While in Dorking yesterday, I did manage to take a few photos. We park in a car park behind this church and then walk up past the church, through the little passage to the High Street. Looking back yesterday the sky was so blue! A lovely crisp clear day but sleet was predicted for later in the afternoon.
The walls of St Martins church and the steeple/clock tower are made of flint (or is it covered with flint?). There are a few flint covered buildings so I presume, not knowing much about the geography of the area, it must be or have been locally sourced.
Dorking High Street. The Quilt Room is further down on the right hand side. There are some different shops in Dorking and one of the ones I enjoyed looking in the last time I went was a cookery shop which seemed to stock everything you could possibly want.
Walking back to the car park we pass this street with nicely kept houses, which are just one road down from the High Street.
Today I cut out the squares for the quilt and laid them out to get an idea of what the completed quilt would look like. I don't think the colours in the photo are quite right but it gives you the basic idea. Now I'm looking forward to sewing it all together! I always think cutting it out is the worst part and after that it comes together fairly quickly. I hope to have this finished by the end of the week.xx


  1. We used to go over to Dorking quite often when I lived in Epsom - we'd go there to eat some nights or just for somewhere different to shop because of the different little stores...

  2. That's a great shot of the church from the shadows. Quilt is looking good.

  3. Loving the looks of that quilt. You made excellent choices in the colors and patterns.

  4. Love that first shot! The quilt looks good too :-)

  5. That quilt is going to be heirloom in the making :)

  6. Your photos in the city are stunning and I LOVE the beginnings of your quilt! Can't wait to see the finished project.
