Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

A Week To Go.

One week until Christmas day. And another year nearly behind us. Wow! Lots of Christmas sewing has been happening, but I have also managed to finish my quilt top for Over The Hill by Wendy Williams. This was the last block. When it was joined to the others in the row, there were a few […]

Christmas In July Blog Hop And Pattern Parade.

Welcome to the Christmas In July Blog Hop which has been organised by Carole of From My Carolina Home. Each participant is providing a tutorial and many also have give-aways – me included. Huge thanks to Carole for getting this started. Okay, let’s jump into the tutorial. To those who know my blog it is […]

A March Mixture.

There are a lot of bits and pieces that still need finishing, so I will try to keep on top of those UFOs in March. Knowing that Easter is around the corner, I managed to find a frame for this little rabbit. I think it is a Bonnie Sullivan design (All Through The Night) I […]

Follow Up Requests.

This is a quick post to answer a couple of questions and follow up on some requests. Jenny and Susan asked for close up pics of the trees with the snow hearts. These are the felt ones. And these are the fabric and felt hearts. These were made with a free pattern from Bunny Hill […]

Stitching Progress.

I am making a lot of stitching progress on a variety of projects this week. The next wool project I have taken on is another Wendy Williams design called Flocks By Night. I have started on the centre panel and am using wool. I will make the surrounding stars later. I have attached all the […]

Off The Radar

Summer has started here with a bang – as in storms and rain. Our state had severe weather warnings out and there was a lot of rain in some areas as well as flooding. No flooding here but a lot of rain and the garden is happy. I know the weeds are growing fast. I […]

Rainbow Cats For Blogger’s Quilt Festival.

This is my second entry¬† in the Blogger’s Quilt festival for Fall 2017. This wonderful sharing of quilts is organised by Amy Ellis of Amy’s Creative Side. This quilt is another one from earlier in the year and has been on my blog before. There are a lot of lovely pieced animal blocks around and […]

Little Red Cushions.

I think I have been working away on these little stitcheries over quite a few years. They are the ones I tended to pick up and take with me when I needed a portable project. These are the Christmas tree design. I have completed the set of 12 stitcheries from a pattern by Lynette Anderson […]

Three Trees.

Another bundle of tiny cushions has been completed and this time they come in threes. The design itself, from Marg Low, has three trees. And then I made three cushions and played with each of the designs. The first one was done with hand embroidery. The second was with fabric stitched on by machine. And […]

Too Early For Easter?

It is probably not too early to be planning for Easter, although, like many, I am always surprised at seeing hot cross buns in the supermarkets the day after Christmas. I have finished a little Easter mini from Anni Downs. The stitching was done last year but I had not added the borders and done […]
