Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery


Another one of those found goodies! Finished! I just need to decide how to use it. This is a pattern provided by Leanne Beasley at one of the Glen Harrow stitching days. I am pleased that I am making a dent in the UFO pile.

Colourful Friday Favourites.

Colourful Fridays are back and this year they are happening every fortnight, giving more time to search for those special colours. Take a visit to Robyn at  Daisy Quilts to see all the lovely colours today. Why not join in! To start the year Robyn asked us to show our favourite colours. Oh dear! Where […]

A Very Loved Old Bear.

This is a little needle case I made from a pattern by Mum’s Moments. Just the right amount of applique and embroidery. As I have been sorting through a few things I found that I had tucked this aside. Now it is back in use.

Spring Stitchery.

This only needed a little work to have it finished, but for some reason it disappeared off my radar. The stitching is now complete and I will take it to the framer when he returns in February. This is a pattern from Leanne Beasley at one of the workshops I attended.

Christmas Leftovers.

I need to get back on the wagon and start posting a few entries on this blog. No matter how much planning and work is done, there are always a few things that never quite get finished before Christmas. This is an embroidery from a design by Christine Book. The idea is to sew it […]
