Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

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 […]




Hexies And Rabbits.

No quilt pictures today – but I am in the middle of quilting another one! Today is all about yarn and crochet hooks. I have two finished items. The first is a small blanket – probably lap sized throw. Lots of crocheted hexagons made first and then all crocheted together with white yarn. It took […]




Sudoku Quilt.

Another week, another quilt. I am trying my best to catch up with UFOs. I received this as a kit from the lovely ladies at Sewing Connection. This quilt came together very easily, especially as I enjoy Sudoku puzzles. The layout is based on the 9 by 9 Sudoku puzzle. There are nine 5 inch […]




Quilts For Boys.

Choosing fabrics to make into quilts for children is always very tricky, especially when those children get to an age where they like to be particular about what goes in their room. Our grandie knew the design he wanted but not the fabric. My solution was to point our grandson to a few quilt fabric […]




Completed Cats.

There are a lot of lovely pieced animal blocks around and Elizabeth Hartman has a great collection of them. I have adapted her cat mini quilt to make a full sized bed quilt. This is one of her easier blocks but it still involved a little bit of fiddling around. Every cat block is a […]




Bow Ties.

Some quilts need time to sit for a while before the right plan comes along to finish them. This Bow Tie quilt was one of those. I really didn’t know what to do with the white empty spaces. So it sat for several years until I came up with a plan and had the skill […]




Three Trees.

Another bundle of tiny cushions has been completed and this time they come in threes. The design itself, from Marg Low, has three trees. And then I made three cushions and played with each of the designs. The first one was done with hand embroidery. The second was with fabric stitched on by machine. And […]
