U3A Quilt

http://www.u3a.org.uk/ By the way U3A stands for University of the Third Age where people teach for and learn for free apart from subs to cover costs and basic expenses. Check on the opening link to find out more. Our Canterbury Branch is approaching 1000 members and we are lucky to have lots of ex-academics and teachers.
Anyway the U3A quilt started at a taster day is making good progress. The layout has been decided, the blocks framed with strips and are now layered up ready to quilt. The one shown is 1C, a favourite and the top right block with extra backing and wadding allowed to accommodate stitching and flipping the borders later. I'm using Hobbs 80/20 cotton/poly in black as the colours are mostly dark and I had two pieces left over from full batts.
