The U3A Patchwork and Quilting group created a group quilt for Quilts for Carers, a charity which provides young people who are leaving the care system with gifted quilts.
Each of the members made a block and these were put together to create this quilt.
A great time was had by all.

The photographs below show our members at work with block printing and quilt making.
The group were treated to an Indian Block Printing workshop hosted by U3A members Carolyn Patel in March 2022. This was a completely new craft to the majority of the members, but a very enjoyable, and productive time was had by all members, as you can see from the end products in photo number 9 (picture by Bob Griffin). These fabric pieces can be used to include in various aspects of patchwork and quilting and also stand-alone embellished pieces.
