Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Paris. Maybe. One day?

No. I am not lucky enough to be in Paris, but I have been using a lovely fabric range called Dance in Paris by Brigitte Heitland. She has designed a pattern for Zen Chic named Spring In Paris. I have followed her design almost to the letter. This is my version. It is about 60 […]

Many Colours.

While it has been cold outside, I have made the most of having my Harbour Blanket on my lap so I could finish the borders. This is a design from Attic 24. It is quite large. This is a double bed. I had a laugh when I saw this photo. The edges look so uneven. […]

Yarning Away.

Lots of little yarn projects have been worked on and some have even been completed. This little doll is a pattern from Mary Jane’s Tearoom and is called simply a Little Yarn Doll. A lovely pattern to follow and lots of variations included. I have kept to the basics for the first one, giving her […]

Easter, Yay!

We are having a gorgeous Easter long weekend with beautiful sunny days. Even the resident magpie family agree and have been out and about checking out the Autumn foliage. Easter decorating has been happening and there are a couple of new additions. A little crochet bunny. And a new hoop embroidery. This is a Kathy […]

Too Much Cuteness.

I just had to finish off that koala I was knitting. But it didn’t stop with one. A bit like eating potato chips. So I ended up with three. They are lovely to make – a little bit fiddly, but worth it. The hardest part was the faces and I am sure that they will […]

Pink And Green Bricks.

Before I jump into showing the quilt, I want to let you know that the winners of the Blog Hop have been selected. I have contacted both recipients and their patterns are on the way. Congratulations to Marilyn in Utah and Maureen in Ontario. And thanks you to all who joined in the hop and […]

Clam Shells And Wool Flowers.

My wool flowers and clam shell piece has made it to the finish line. It has ended up as quite a big larger that I thought – 48 X 21 inches. It is a Wendy Williams pattern designed as a table runner but I will use mine as a wall hanging. It is from her […]

A Cotton Crochet finish.

Back in November I was working on a crochet blanket which contained a variety of blocks. I was distracted when one of the colourways really appealed to me as a possibility for a full blanket. So of course I went off on a tangent and made a block to try it out. The more it […]

Mostly Red.

A whole lot of red seems to be happening around here. And why not? It certainly brightens up a Winter’s day. I have been doing a little bit of knitting for our grandson and this sweater just happens to be red.  It’s fun knitting for littlies as the item grows so quickly.   We also […]

Cutting And Stitching.

I have once again been very fortunate to attend some workshops with Deborah Louie as the tutor. The first day saw us working with raw edge applique and different machining techniques. We also made drunkard’s path blocks and explored techniques for making circles. This is my sample from the morning for the raw edge applique. […]
