Quilt progress

Good morning! I have been having a few technical issues!
I've not been able to add any photos to my post?! I click on the little picture icon to add a photo, but the for some reason, I have lost the little button that says 'upload'. No idea where it has gone. Mr T discovered that if I switch to HTML view I can add the pictures, and then switch back to compose for everything else. A pain, but I do now have photos!

So this post was written last night...

Hello! It's been a busy, crafty day here at Henry's Shed today! Well, actually not here, because I went out to do my crafting! I packed up my sewing machine and lots of bits and bobs and went to my sister's house. This seems to be becoming a regular event now, she has a lovely 'crafting' room, big enough for us both to set up our sewing machines, so we sew and chatter and drink tea and generally have a lovely time!
So I have managed to make a fair bit of progress on my quilt. I only have 3 more lessons left of my quilting course. This means my quilt will be finished, which I am very excited about, but I will be sad not to be going to the classes anymore. They have been so fun and I have learnt so much.
So here are my 6 finished blocks!

Storm at sea
Twisted log cabin
Inner city
Folded bow tie
Rail fence
Drunkards path

Only 3 more classes to go! I can't wait to be able to show you all my finished quilt!




  1. This is going to be fabulous, and such fun attending a class and working along others doing the same thing!

  2. Oh, Karen, the blocks are all SO lovely! I can't decide which I like best, but your Drunkard's Path block is especially pretty - and so perfect! Remind me to ask you about sewing those curves, because I've seen a few ideas for my bee quilt that involve curves, but I've ruled them about because I'm afraid of them and didn't want to subject you two to them. :)

    It's looking wonderful, can't wait to see it all finished!

  3. Hello, just found your blog by chance. Your quilt is beautiful work and the colours are lovely! About the photos; l have been batteling the same problem. I was advised to download google chrome (blogger is run by google and has made it that we have to use their alternative) l did this and all is working as normal. All the best Pam

    1. Thanks for the tip Pam, I will give it a try! x
