Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

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 […]

Christmas Stars For Blogger’s Quilt Festival.

I an sharing a quilt in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival  (Fall 2017)run by Amy Ellis from Amy’s Creative Side. This is a quilt I made earlier this year and have shown it before, but I am putting it in a separate post for the festival. The fabric is from the range Countdown To Christmas by […]

Semi Circles Or Windmills.

Time to catch up on some quilting. This one has been sandwiched for a while and I finally gave it time on the machine last week. It is actually the last one waiting in line that was sandwiched. There are still stacks of flimsies waiting to be sandwiched and hopefully I can make a dent […]

Little Red Cushions.

I think I have been working away on these little stitcheries over quite a few years. They are the ones I tended to pick up and take with me when I needed a portable project. These are the Christmas tree design. I have completed the set of 12 stitcheries from a pattern by Lynette Anderson […]

Being A Tourist.

This delightful package arrived in the post last week. Susan, from PatchworkNPlay, had a give away and obviously I was the lucky recipient. It really is a sweet little pin cushion. Thanks, Susan. Last week we spent a few days in the north-west of our state (Victoria). We wanted to follow the Silo Art Trail. […]

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 […]
