Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Summer Embroidery.

I often notice that bloggers tend to get very busy with other things when the Summer months are here. It makes sense as there is so much to do outside and we have to make the most of those lovely days. I am in that category as I have only posted once since the new […]

Happy 2019.

How quickly we seem to jump into the New Year. We had a lovely start with some beautiful weather – clear blue skies and warm temps. The garden has been loving the warmth and the rain. The apricots are just showing some colour so they have been covered in netting. And the corn is thriving. […]

Christmas Snow.

Definitely no snow here for Christmas (30c) but a snowman instead. This is a small decoration for the tree from a pattern from Penny Lane Primitives called Frosted Kisses. There is also a candle mat and swag in the pattern, but for now one decoration will do. We will far from the snow on Christmas […]

A Year Of Snow Hearts.

December has arrived and with it the final Snow Hearts have been completed. It has been a lovely journey throughout the year with Joan, Shez and Jeanette. We have been using the free patterns from Bunny Hill Designs and completing one design each month. Thank you to all the ladies for keeping me on trackĀ  […]

A Very Woolly Post.

Lots of photos today and all are wool related. I have completed the central panel of my wool applique piece. I am now completing the pieced stars that make up the border. The photos show the whole piece and then in smaller sections. The pattern is by Wendy Williams and is called Flocks By Night. […]

An Animal Day.

All the photos of projects in this post have animals. Not planned that way and I didn’t realise until I was preparing the photos. First up are the Little Penguins from a McKenna Ryan block. I am back to working on these blocks. I think there are 3 more to go. I am being very […]

November Hearts.

This is the second last month for the year of Bunny Hill Snow Hearts. I have kept this one simple and have removed the words as Australia does not celebrate Thanksgiving. They still look lovely. I often find that I am working on several projects at one time and often have nothing in particular to […]

All Through The Night.

I have been to a couple of workshops with Bonnie Sullivan from All Through The Night where I have received a couple of her lovely patterns, and bought a couple more. After getting them stitched I decided to combine them into a small wall hanging rather that individual items. Each block is a pre-printed design […]

Hearts And Yarns For October.

It seems to take a little longer here, but Spring has arrived. This year it has been gradual with the days steadily warming up butĀ  a few cold ones still being thrown in. My trees like to announce the arrival of Spring and the warmer days. It is time for The October Bunny Hill Hearts […]

Woolly Finishes.

I have been catching up on recent workshop projects and have managed two finishes. These are from a day spent with Gail Pan and Bonnie Sullivan. The finishes are the patterns from Bonnie (All Through the Night). The first one is the sewing case. It came with a pre-printed background and the applique is wool. […]
