Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Melting Snowmen.

It is super hot here today so no snowmen would survive. There would be a lot of puddles instead. Thankfully my snowmen are made from felt and can withstand the heat easily. I have not made this design before so this time I made enough to give away and one to keep.  I am only […]

Off The Radar

Summer has started here with a bang – as in storms and rain. Our state had severe weather warnings out and there was a lot of rain in some areas as well as flooding. No flooding here but a lot of rain and the garden is happy. I know the weeds are growing fast. I […]

A Red And Grey Extra Quilt.

This is a re-make of my Woodland Quilt from last month. I wanted to make it in totally different fabrics so it was not a baby quilt. I went with the red and grey so it can fit with Christmas without actually being a Christmas quilt. I have used these fabrics in several other quilts. […]

Parallel Lines.

This is the last of a group of quilts I had quilted one after the other. There are still 3 sandwiched and still waiting, but I wanted to stitch the binding and have a few finishes. This is a pattern I have used before from Leanne Beasley’s book, Romancing The Road Trip. I first made […]

Under The Sea.

An extremely easy finish for this quilt. This one started as a bright and colourful panel that was purchased at a quilt show last year. I simply added the last blue batik border and then found lots of bright batiks to use in the piano keys around the outside. I quilted the centre of the […]

Happy Turtles.

This is a quilt design from People, Places and Quilts that I found when we were in South Carolina. It is the sort of design that can be used in so many different ways. The pattern only has a single block design to be made as many times as needed for the quilt size. Then […]

A Woodland Quilt.

Every now and then a particular fabric range catches your eye and becomes a must have. This quilt is a result of that must have. It is small lap size at 41 inches square. I wanted to keep it simple so used the grey fabric in the large 8 1/2 inch blocks and the border. […]

Quilting In Spring.

Isn’t it lovely when Spring finally arrives!   The blossom has been falling like confetti on the garden and driveway.  So pretty. It has also been much easier to get out to take quilt photos. This quilt is a lovely reminder of our visit to Charleston, SC, as the fabrics were purchased there and remind […]

Yes, More Christmas!

I was not quick enough today and missed my chance at taking photos in the sunshine. We seem to be getting only 5 minute bursts in between rain showers. But I understand our farmers still need the rain so that is far more important. This quilt is a bonus as it is made using the […]

Rainbow Cats For Blogger’s Quilt Festival.

This is my second entry  in the Blogger’s Quilt festival for Fall 2017. This wonderful sharing of quilts is organised by Amy Ellis of Amy’s Creative Side. This quilt is another one from earlier in the year and has been on my blog before. There are a lot of lovely pieced animal blocks around and […]
