Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

March Hares.

There’s always something that makes me think of Alice In Wonderland when I see hares. I am not sure if these are supposed to be rabbits or hares but the ears say hares to me. This is another design from Wendy Williams. It is a block from her Hidden Treasures quilt. I am really not […]

March Fires.

It has been a hot and hair raising start to March in our area. Lightning strikes started several fires in the state park only a few kilometers from where we live. This was the view from the car when I first spotted the smoke. By the time I had arrived home the view had changed […]

Finding Fabric For A Finish.

Quite an alliterative title. But not intended that way. I had completed the three panels for my wall hanging and had auditioned fabrics for the border. Both were tone on tone – one green, one blue. Both were lovely and I was having a hard time deciding. So I took my project to my sewing […]

Summer Sewing.

When you live in or near Melbourne you do get used to the changeable weather. We have already had temps in the 40s this month and our aircon has worked overtime. This week we have returned to cooler days in the low 20s (70s). But today decided to play tricks with us and warmed up […]

A Delightful Menagerie.

This quilt has been a long time coming together.I started the embroideries over two years ago. They are not particularly difficult, but many interruptions came along and it was often put aside. It is good to see all the embroideries completed and to have them now together in a quilt. This is All Creatures Great […]

A Winter Finish On A Very Hot Day.

It is Summer, so hot days should be no surprise. But 40 degrees Celsius is pushing it a bit. Mind you, that is 5 degrees cooler than one day last week. So with all that in mind I finished my Winter scene in wool. Didn’t make me feel cooler but I liked the finish. This […]

Summer Embroidery.

I often notice that bloggers tend to get very busy with other things when the Summer months are here. It makes sense as there is so much to do outside and we have to make the most of those lovely days. I am in that category as I have only posted once since the new […]

Happy 2019.

How quickly we seem to jump into the New Year. We had a lovely start with some beautiful weather – clear blue skies and warm temps. The garden has been loving the warmth and the rain. The apricots are just showing some colour so they have been covered in netting. And the corn is thriving. […]

Christmas Snow.

Definitely no snow here for Christmas (30c) but a snowman instead. This is a small decoration for the tree from a pattern from Penny Lane Primitives called Frosted Kisses. There is also a candle mat and swag in the pattern, but for now one decoration will do. We will far from the snow on Christmas […]

A Year Of Snow Hearts.

December has arrived and with it the final Snow Hearts have been completed. It has been a lovely journey throughout the year with Joan, Shez and Jeanette. We have been using the free patterns from Bunny Hill Designs and completing one design each month. Thank you to all the ladies for keeping me on trackĀ  […]
