Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Just Stitching Along.

Totally unrelated to sewing – but I have been enjoying the fun home page on Google today. I can’t help but push the buttons and play with the monsters. They are muppets to mark Jim Henson’s 75th birthday! Now back to my  regular sewing.  It seems to have been a busy week but I have […]

Thinking Of Quilts.

It’s really hard making decisions about which projects will come next. There are so many new patterns I want to do but I also have a lot of older patterns that I love too. They are quilts I have made many years ago but now want to make again in newer fabrics. Sometimes it is […]

The Next Finish.

Triangles Done.

I have finished the straight line quilting and the binding on my half square triangle quilt. I really like the simplicity of the design when using half square triangles with white. The fabric is Moda Winter Song.  I have  used a Moda Bake Shop pattern found here.  I did add a border to the original […]
