create an heirloom quilt to celebrate their 40th Anniversary in 2022
Based on a New York Beauty block by Hamburg Creations, it shows how joining Great Glen u3a gives you the opportunity to Learn Something New. That leads to new experiences, knowledge, friends and fun. It is the sunrise of a new phase and lightens up your life.
The results of the competition have just been announced and I am very pleased to announce that this block, representing our u3a, will be included in the quilt.
The 40 blocks selected are on the u3a website
