Although there hasnâ€™t been a news report for a while it doesnâ€™t mean activity has ceased. Diana has been trying to wash and dry material and squares in inclement weather. Weâ€™ve finally had some sunny weather which has helped greatly with the drying. Sheâ€™s also been busy making some rag quilts for a family of 8 children who lost their home and all their possessions in a fire about three weeks ago. This has helped her test out a new walking foot for her sewing machine, prior to using it on a LQ.
The Ice Cream quilt has been opened.
Since our last update, squares were received from the following people:
Shirley Clarke x 1
Lucinda Phillips x 1
Moira Anne Jeffcoat x 3
Carol Ayling x 2
Ruth Swinton x 1
Seren x 2
Jill Smith x 4
Janet Ramsden x 6
EE (Beth) Filmer x 2
Tracey Jarman x 2
Sandra Wright x 2
Rachel Green x 1

We are now nearly 2 months old â€“ how time flies!
One busy little washing machine is slowly plowing itâ€™s way through an assortment of doona covers and fabrics. It is slow going as the wintry conditions making drying a challenge, but progress is being made.
The squares that came in from Quilts4Kids are slowly being sorted. To date 87 have been photographed and uploaded to the website. Because of this, we now have more of our Any Child categories set up. If you would like to stitch without a deadline, then an Any Child square would be perfect for you. All the fun of stitching with no deadline stress. Have a look at the categories listed and maybe stitch for categories that donâ€™t have many squares yet.
A square was also received from Sha Ward.
Our Facebook membership now stands at 95! We creep steadily toward 100â€¦.
Thank you to all who have sent in monetary love gifts. It all helps.

Lots of squares arrived this week. Firstly, a lovely heart from Susan De Tert for the Purple SAL. Then, two big parcels arrived from Quilts4Kids. These are squares that were left over when Q4K closed last year. There were lots of them. Some have been added to our website already; the others will be uploaded when they have been sorted. These will be made into quilts as soon as themes can be set and fabrics sourced. LQAu thanks Linde very much for this valuable contribution. As much as possible, the squares will be uploaded under the stitchers details, so if you know of anyone who sent Any Child squares into Q4K and didnâ€™t see their square/s appear on a quilt, please give them our web link so they can see if weâ€™ve received their squares, and keep updated with how we use them.
The â€œI Spy-Pâ€ quilt closed. That means we now have 6 signed up quilts on the go. Please keep promoting us within your communities to parents of children who may be eligible for one of our special quilts.
Our Facebook members now stands at 81. It is lovely to see WIP from the stitchers. Thank you for all your posts. It is wonderful to see where you are up to with your stitching.

Addison-Hopeâ€™s quilt has closed. Our second child sign-up is now under way. The next Stitch-A-Long has opened. This is an â€œI Spyâ€ quilt which we hope will be a lot of fun to stitch for.
Four more people have joined our Facebook page; we are slowly creeping up to 100 members. Some of you have been very actively sharing our group with your friends â€“ thank you. Weâ€™ve made an A4 size poster up that you can print and put up on the noticeboards of groups you associate with. It is in PDF format, so please PM or email if you would like a copy.
Diana and Val are busy washing and drying material. The washing part is easy, but drying is a challenge in this wintry weather.
6 squares were received this week. Thank you to Donna Ryan, Sandra Wright, and Tracey Jarman. It is very exciting to see them arrive â€“ a bit like Christmas!
