Up to date

Here is my latest quilt for Barbara's challenge.
In July we cycled in France, along the Loire, then up to Chartres, across to Rouen and then along the coast from Dieppe to Le Harve - about 900kms. We had a lovely final day in Le Harve,  The centre of the town is a UNESCO World Heritage site, designed by Perret in the late 40's 50's. The architecture is fascinating and I loved the regular lines, blocks, and patterns and could see the repetition everywhere.
I was going to make a very abstract quilt but in the end went for a "conventional contemporary quilt".
As always with my quilts...Happy memories
Here are a couple of the many photos I took

This is the quilt before stitching
