Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Waiting For Borders.

I have finally made progress with this quilt. I have been using Leesa Chandler’s beautiful fabric – Under The Australian Sun – but did not have any for the setting triangles and borders. I had a couple of possible fabrics but just wasn’t convinced that they were the best I could do. Thankfully my LQS […]

A Black And White Friday.

Hi! For Colourful Friday this week Robyn has asked us to look for black and white. Take a visit to Daisy Quilts to see what everyone has found. There is so much to choose from so I decided to stay with fabrics and notions. I am also still having computer issues so will just have […]

Yellow Bear.

This cuddly fellow is Yellow Bear.  He was a pattern in a craft magazine many years back.  Yellow Bear is made out of plush felt  and his vest is wool felt. A group of us got together and all made our own version of Yellow Bear. Today he is joining Melody’s Teddy Bear’s Picnic at […]

Birds and Houses.

We have been going through one of those long computer sagas over the last 4 weeks where a variety of different things do and don’t want to work.  In the end all the time and work was to no avail and it has gone in for extensive rehab. Hopefully by the end of the week […]

Polar Bear Getting Hot At The Picnic.

This has to be one of the easiest bears I have made. Simple and cute. He’s going to the picnic organised by Melody over at The House On The Side Of The Hill. I think he is hoping there will be a swimming pool so he can cool off!

Gardening Angel.

Oh my gosh! Look what I found.  This has to be one of the first stitcheries I did a lifetime ago. I used pictures from the Kindred Spirits book and then sewed them on to a piece of fabric to make a wall hanging. How things have changed. I still like the stitcheries but may […]

A Colourful Friday Valentine.

Another fortnight has snuck by and here we are at Colourful Friday. Today we have a focus on the colours for Valentine’s Day. Please take the time to visit Robyn at Daisy Quilts to see what everyone has found for this week. I seem to have concentrated mostly on reds and pinks, and also hearts […]


It’s Teddy Bear day again, hosted by Melody of The House On The Side Of The Hill. Take a visit to see some other friendly bears. My bears today come from a pattern by Hickety Pickety called Bennington. It was one of the first patterns I made when I was starting doll and bear making.  […]

Aussie Garden Twist.

I have been playing with blocks on  my design wall using Leesa Chandler’s fabric. It is a lattice type pattern called Garden Twist.  I have picked a couple of changes to make with the blocks already. I had also chosen a border fabric that looked good when the fabrics sat together. However, when the blocks […]

A German Speaking Bear.

This little fellow is quite a recent addition to my bear collection. Our son and DIL went to work in Germany for 6 months. This mohair Steiff bear came home with them as a birthday gift for me. He has a growly tummy. I  have  kept  all his buttons and labels on so that one […]
