Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Seeing Stars.

I am trying to make 24 of these. Still not at the half way mark !




Green Friday.

I couldn’t resist any longer. I have been following the Colourful Friday posts for a while now on Fairchild Street and   Daisy Quilts, and now I have decided to join in. Please check in at Daisy Quilts for the other participants and see the green they have found. At the moment it is still […]




Shared Blocks.

Many patchwork and quilting groups make friendship blocks and mine is no exception. Our group had to select the block we prefered, provide the pattern and give and indication of the colour preference. Over time all the blocks are completed and returned to the person who chose the block. I selected a signature block and […]




At The Machine

Steady rain for most of the day here so a good excuse to stay in. I used my time to start quilting this quilt made with Kaffe Fassett fabric.  Just using cross hatching. Sounds simple but lots of concentration needed to keep those lines straight.




Lots of Swirls.

I can’t lay claim to this quilt. It was made by a lovely young lady who has only recently started quilting. I did help with the pattern and the fabric but all the hard work was hers. There is only the binding to be done. I think it looks stunning and hope there are more […]




A Good Week.

It seems to have been a busy week, but that’s fine. I have manged to achieve most of the things I had planned. I have made a good start on the needleturn for the Butterfly Garden quilt. I have nearly completed cutting out my beautiful Leesa Chandler fabric – Under The Australian Sun. And to […]




Colour favourites.

I can’t help it. I really do like red, white and blue. I enjoyed buying little bits of fabric on my travels as it is pretty easy to match up these colours. It’s a great quilt for all those single fat quarters that are bought just because they look lovely and are not for any […]




Roadwork and Blossom.

Strange combination – roadwork and blossom. Roadwork first. I started the quilt using the Little Hot Rod fabric from South Seas Imports. Like many fabric companies they have patterns for many of their ranges. This was the one I used to start the quilt – here. It was very quick to put together as all […]




Silk doll.

A while back I attended a doll symposium in Newcastle and one of the presenters was Patti Culea. This doll was made in her class. We had to dye our fabric first before sewing the doll. We also dyed the fabric for the dress. Sewing the body of the doll was difficult because the silk […]




Planning For The Week Ahead.

Lots of preparation needs to be done this week for a variety of projects to be started or continued. I have reached the point with my Butterfly Garden blocks, (Leanne’s House), where all the embroidery is done but not the applique. I did start off by doing both the embroidery and the needleturn on each […]
