Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Little Finishes.

It is good to be getting back on track with  some quilting. I have had this panel sandwiched for a while and thought it would be good to do to get back into the swing of FMQ. I have only added an inner and outer border to make it slightly larger. It will be good […]




Back On Track.

Hello August! The McKenna Ryan blocks for Aussie Christmas are steadily growing. They are very time consuming but well worth the effort. The ornaments need to have hanging ribbons added, but I need to find ones that I like. That part can easily wait as I know the rest of the blocks will not be […]




Warm And Woolly.

Knitting in Winter is a lovely way to keep warm but I have now realised that crocheting a blanket is even warmer. I have finished one in pure wool and it has been a delight to snuggle under it as it has grown. It covers me perfectly from chin to toes, so it now sits […]

Stitching The Time Away.

Not a lot of big projects on the go but I have been catching up on a few stitcheries. These are part of a set of 12. I think I am up to the half way mark. I suppose it is appropriate to have snowmen at the moment as we are only a few days […]




A little Bird Told Me.

I do have a little bird, but it hasn’t really told me anything. This is a Trish Burr design that was in a Christmas issue of Inspirations magazine the Christmas before last. It is worked in single strand DMC and is only a couple of inches in size. It is worked on hanky linen. I […]




Bits And Bobs.

Bits and pieces seems to be the way  my sewing and crafting weeks are going at the moment. I have finished another one of these crochet bunnies, but this time have added some coloured yarn as well. I saw several variations of this pattern on Pinterest and liked the inclusion of coloured stripes. I have […]




A Day At AQC.

I enjoyed a lovely day at the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne. Perfect weather to walk through the garden to the Exhibition Building and enjoy the displays inside. This building lends itself so well to displays of this kind. It is worth going to just to look at the lovely restoration work on the building […]




Seeing Stars, Again.

Back to the UFO pile and some quilting! I was able to finish this quilt and complete the binding. The fabric is from the range Countdown To Christmas by Sweetwater. I wanted to make the star shape the negative space in this one so use the dots on a cream background. Same fabric in the […]
