Work in Progress report

I finally have two more diamond blocks done. I hope you enjoy seeing them.

It has taken me an age this year to settle back into regular CQ stitching as it feels like I have had a stream of little breaks and interruptions that have broken the rhythm of work.

These are light coloured blocks. I am on the homeward stretch with this quilt now.

As usual if you click on the image it will take you to larger version.

Online Crazy Quilting Classes:

Just a quick reminder for those who are interested in taking a class with me. You will find all my classes listed under the top tab imaginatively titled Classes online you will also find information on how online classes are run.



  1. For those that it’s an interest to, which I would believe anyone following them, there not boring. I have found them most informative and very interesting, and I like how you have done the layout of each entry. I am glad it’s all in one place to , being able to check back for further ideas, pictures and progress.

    Thank you Sharon.

  2. Zandra – all the patterned fabrics are paisley some are ties others are fashion fabrics I have collected them for years

    Arlene if I have not sent everyone to sleep with boredom by then I will document it like I am doing the other quilt.

  3. Sharon, these blocks absolutely make a person drool!!!!!!!!!!! As usual, I have whiled away the morning looking at your blocks rather than working on a project, but have had a thoroughly wonderful time too. In relooking at the diamond blocks, I notice a lot of paisly – are these tie silk or other fabrics. Zandra

  4. Hi Sharon,
    Only just starting to take more interest in this project of yours, will you be eventually documenting it as you are with your sampler and other quilt? Hope so I think it would be wonderful to read about the stitches, materials etc used.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. I love these blocks, Sharon! And I’m all signed up and looking forward to the class next week, too… although technically I STILL don’t have time to be taking classes! and next weekend I’ll be in a bellydance workshop all weekend and nowhere near my studio…

  6. These are lovely Sharon and, like Mary, I can’t wait to see the finished piece! I think it’s so wonderful that we can find a way to combine both ‘sane’ and crazy quilting.

    btw..although I haven’t finished putting them together into the final project, if you’d like to have a peek at all my blocks from the TIF challenge (together) check out my blog post of Wed. Feb 11 (click on the pic to enlarge).

  7. Beautiful, Sharon! I love the golds and whites. The wheat shaft with the white beads is ingenious! Really lovely. This is going to be an amazing quilt when it’s finished. I can’t wait to see it all put together! What’s your time frame, do you think, for getting it done? (LOL! That’s the kind of question that deserves a good smack on top of the head, isn’t it?!)

    Anyway, it’s really lovely! As usual!!
