Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Completely Pinned Out!

I am completely pinned out in so many ways. When I am ready to sandwich a quilt I set up a trestle table so I can lay out the quilts. I use a table because I  am not too keen about crawling around the floor. I work on the idea that if I have taken […]

Making Leaves.

I am currently working on a quilt designed by Leesa Chandler of Chandler’s Cottage.  Leesa designed the gorgeous fabric, Under The Australian Sun. The main blocks have gum leaves. The leaves are made in two parts from a selection of green and brown fabrics. Strips of each colour are sewn together then a right and […]

Many Thanks And A GO! Give Away.

All has returned to some sort of normal here after the craziness and fun of guest posting with Madame Samm. I would like to say a very BIG thank you to all the wonderful people who visited my blog, became followers and left comments. I hope I have replied to all. I am now enjoying […]

A RED Letter Day.

Or should that be a RED quilt day. Today I am having some fun doing the Tuesday Guest post at Sew We Quilt @ Stash Manicure.  And I get to show you this finally finished quilt top. Madame Samm is running a wonderful Wantobe Quilter’s Campaign. If you want to be in the draw for […]

Buttons and posts.

Colour Play.

Nothing happening. I am being indulgent. Just me having a colour fix!

Tube Stripping.

I had watched this interesting tutorial from Missouri Quilt Co. about strip tubing and could not resist the temptation to try it. I had a Flag Day Farm jelly roll at hand and had no other plans for it, so decided to give it a try. I treated this as my test run. I also […]

Enjoying The Net.

One of the things I thoroughly enjoy about the Internet, and blogs specifically, is that so many people are prepared to share their wonderful ideas. This week I have have enjoyed making several items using tutorials from blogs. The first one is the S’Mitten Quilt from Erin Russek on her blog One Piece at a […]

Bears In Boxes.

Another picnic day has arrived. Time to visit Melody at The House On The Side Of The Hill to join in the picnic. I was searching for a particular fabric the other day when I found this piece covered in gorgeous bears. I have used it on several occasions but still have a good metre […]

A Difference In A Day.

I am so pleased I had a bright sunny photo yesterday, because today is the exact opposite. Cold, cloudy and drizzly with rain. The good thing for us is that we are gradually filling those reservoirs again, and boy, do we need it after so many years of drought. It has been a very good […]
