Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Framed Up.

Just catching up with a few posts this weekend and will then be away from the Internet for a few more days. I was able to collect my framed embroideries a week ago. I have a wall recently painted where I would like to hang a collection of embroideries and photos. I want all the […]

Embroidery Started.

I decided I needed to get back to some “formal” embroidery and challenge myself with more than a stitchery. This is a pattern from Daaft Designs and is making me use a lot of stitches that I haven’t used for quite a while. I think progress will be slow for a while, but I am […]

Wiggling Away.

There has been very little posting happening here the last week or so, but we have been busy with lots of other things. One of them was to go to see The Wiggles.  Nothing to do with any sort of sewing, but such good fun. I think I enjoyed it as much, if not more, […]

Bears On Bikes.

Georgie is a little bear made out of German mohair and is about 7 inches tall.  I find it interesting that along with collecting bears we also seem to accumulate the decorating items too.  I know the background is a little busy but I needed some brightening up as the day was very overcast. To […]

Spots and Polka Dots.

Another Colourful Friday has arrived and Robyn has asked us to look for spots and polka dots in any colour.  This is rather dangerous for a patchworker because you can never have too many of these in your stash! I had to make sure I only took a handful off the shelves! I did find […]

It’s Picnic Day.

The bear I have chosen for the picnic today is more of a doll pattern, but is still a very friendly bear. He has great big feet and a lovely face. I hope my memory is correct – I think the pattern is designed by Sewn From The Heart. I may need to take an […]

Two Little Friends.

The pattern for these koalas appeared in a homespun magazine last year – Issue 80. The design is by Rosalie Quinlan. In her original pattern the overalls have a full bib and straps.  I decided to make these with elasticised waists so that little fingers could easily dress and undress them. It is a very […]

A Little Redwork.

Lots of people have been working on embroideries from A Gardener’s Journal.  I am not planning on completing the whole set. Instead, I have chosen a few of the smaller ones that I thought I could put into a wall hanging. I also decided to do them as redwork. I may add just one or […]

A Finished Race (Track).

I had started this quilt last year. My friend was making the same quilt so we worked together piecing the panels and then had another day pinning the layers together.  Along came all the Christmas sewing and this one was put aside.  It was good to be able to take it out and know that […]
