Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Clear View.

Still not a lot happening here in the way of finishes. This little clear view pouch is the only offering. It was part of a kit from a stitching day with Gail Pan last  year. It did have an embroidery to go on the fabric side, but I am keeping that for another purpose. I […]

Snow Hearts For March.

So far, so good. I have been able to complete my Snow hearts for the March deadline. And again I have made two in different ways. The first one is all felt. And of course the second one is felt on a fabric background. Together with Shez and Joan we are meeting our monthly challenge […]

Working With Wool.

Working with wool fabrics appears to becoming popular. I have had the opportunity to be able to work on a project combining ideas from both Sue Spargo and Wendy Williams. The pattern is from Wendy and many of the stitching ideas are from Sue. The colours are more vibrant than the photo shows, but you […]

Snowies In A Basket.

The felt theme has continued with a little finish – a small penny rug. Such an easy one to make. As always I have added to the original design with some buttons and a bit more embroidery. Can’t help myself. Now it is time to get back to some quilting. Have a lovely week. Cheers, […]

Snow Hearts For February.

So far, so good. I am keeping up with the self imposed monthly requirement for Snow Hearts from Bunny Hill Designs. Here is the installment for February.     I am stitching along with Shez, and Joan is planning to join us as well as Jeanette. It is always interesting to see how each person […]

A February Quilt Finish.

Finally a quilt finish. It has taken me until February but it is done. Good to be getting back to finishing quilts. It is a very simple design made up of half square triangles. The same colours are paired up to make a rectangular block. They can be put together to make any sized quilt. […]

Snow Hearts.

A year or two back, Bunny Hill Designs had free patterns for some heart decorations. I was not able to make them at the time but after a chat with Shez we decided to stitch along together and make one each month as per the original follow along. Thanks Shez, for keeping me on track. […]

Pin Cushion Play.

Over the last two weeks I have been able to attend a class with Nicole at Sewing Connection to work on Sue Spargo style embroidery and wool work. It has been wonderful to learn about a variety of techniques when working with wool and finding out about the various threads to use for this embroidery. […]

2018 Begins.

Here’s to another New Year! I do hope it has been a good start for everyone. Our garden decided it was the perfect time to be busy so I have been picking a lot of strawberries and blueberries . Most of the strawberries ended up as jam.   The blueberries ended up being eaten rather […]

Little Christmas Bits.

This week is a good time to catch up on a few little bits and pieces. I started these button stars a long, long time ago. For some reason they were hidden away. All the hard work of sewing on the buttons was done and all I had to do was sew on a backing. […]
