WOYWW #265 & Love Quilts UK

Good morning ladies...

Thank you for visiting my blog from Stamping-Ground I am entry no.40.

Well this is not truly a WOYWW as my crafting has not been very productive at my table, it was temporarily relocated to my lap on the sofa as I have been cross stitching squares for Love Quilts UK who turn them into gorgeous quilts for children with a terminal illness.

This charity would not be able to do this without the excellent volunteers who cross stitch and quilter who sew them, without these fantastic people they would not be able to supply these quilts.

These are my four completed squares:

These squares will be used on a Winnie The Pooh themed quilt that Love Quilts are creating as a gift for my daughter Éloise who is like her mother Disney crazy.

If you are a cross stitcher or would like to donate please visit

and you will find more information as to how you can help.

As a mother of a child with a terminal illness you will never understand how special these quilts are for the child and their parents!

  2. Gorgeous quilts, your work is beautiful, unfortunately I`m not much of a sewing person, only with my arm twisted do I thread a needle.

  3. What a lovely lovely thing to do. The finished quilt is so pretty and your squares are gorgeous.

  4. A beautiful gift for your daughter when it is all finished and presented. A wonderful group of people who cross stitch these quilts. Many years ago - when my eyesight was good enough to do cross stich - I sewed several squares for the Afghan project - a similar project, but for babies.
    Take care.

  6. Such beautiful work! I haven't done cross stitch in ages! I used to do large framed pictures and did well with them as to ribbons at our county fair. Happy WOYWW!

  7. Hi Alison,

    Wonderful cross stitch and such a great cause! I'm sure the quilt will make some little one very happy, not to mention snuggly warm!

    Happy belated WOYWW
