Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Slow And Steady.

Some sewing jobs just take time and can’t be rushed. I have been slowly working on the quilting of the Butterfly quilt. Just straight line, in the ditch quilting, but still time consuming. I am almost there, possibly one or two nights and then it should be ready for the binding. There is light at […]


Robyn, of Daisy Quilts, is back with Colourful Fridays. Our task for this Friday is to find the colours of a sunset. The last couple of weeks around here have not provided any sunsets worthy of a picture, so I did a search through older photos. And I also found another way to fit the […]

Bears In A Snow Globe.

Another Thursday with a picnic to go to with Melody at The House On The Side Of The Hill. To join in the picnic just click on the link. This little Russ bear is about 4 inches tall and was a lovely gift from a friend. He is sitting next to a musical teddy bear […]

Bits And Pieces.

It’s a bit chilly out, so a good day for inside activities. I have managed to pin this quilt sandwich. Some more cards have been added to the stash. And I have been able to purchase this book – 501 Quilting Motifs. I have so much to learn about free motion quilting and one of […]

Making A Start.

I have started to put the blocks together. Still keeping it very simple. Four blocks went back together to form the centre and then a white border.  Another row of blocks went all the way around. My plan is to add another white border and another row of blocks.  I will then have used up […]

9 Patch.

A while back I purchased some Califon fabric by Mark Lipinski.  It has already been used in 2 other quilts here and here. I still like it and have a lot left  so decided to use the charm packs to make the disappearing 9 patch blocks. I am not planning to put them into the […]

Red Bear.

I have decided to continue my red theme  a little longer -don’t worry, it will eventually pass. I am once again joining Melody who is hosting the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. You can meet the other picnicers over at The House On The Side Of The Hill. This is a lovely little mohair bear named Merrin […]

Red Bug Bites!

I think after working with so much red and white fabric, the colour choice has rubbed off with card making as well. When visiting a local scrapping shop last week I spotted some love red papers and couldn’t resist. I have been making an effort to re-stock my card supplies so here are the newest.

Blogger’s Quilt Festival.

I am once again joining in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival organised by Amy’s Creative Side.  Thank you to Amy for giving us the opportunity to look at so many wonderful quilts. Link up to her site to see hundreds of amazing quilts on display. This time I am displaying a work in progress. I would […]

Bears At The Picnic.

This little bear came home to live with us after one of our sons spent some time in Canada kayaking and snow boarding. He is not a big bear but he does have his own character. Our children used to find this book quite amusing, too.  Gives new meaning to the saying ” a bear […]
