Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Keeping Warm And Busy.

I have been outside keeping busy in the garden. I have been covering some of the plants as there is a frost predicted for tonight. It may not keep the plants warm, but it should prevent frost damage. Even with gloves on, my fingers noticed the chill. I had a little celebration this week as […]

Small Things This Time.

These little faces have been watching me for a while and I think that was a way of reminding myself I had to get them, and their clothes, finished. They are a knit pattern from ak traditions. I have made some other patterns from them a long time ago, but found these and thought they […]

Lots Of New Starts.

Time to work out what to make next, so I have been trying out a few patterns to see if they are what I want. So, lots of new starts. I started with a test block using the Tula Pink pandas. It was a bit fiddly finding the right size to cut the centre block […]

Keeping Warm.

Lots of chilly mornings here but we are getting lovely sunshine during the day. All the heating systems are working overtime at night keeping us snug and warm. Perfect weather for these little frosties which are stitched from designs made by Michelle from Michelle Ridgway Designs. These are stitched from Cottage Garden Threads. I plan […]

Half Way.

It is odd to think that in a couple of days we will be half way through 2020. Time flies regardless of the way the year is unfolding. That is the limit of my navel gazing. On to the craft projects! I am keeping on with my 2019 Gail Pan BOM. July is completed. Now […]

A Winter Finish.

The first day of June saw temperatures drop here so we really knew that Winter had arrived. Coats, hats, gloves and scarves all came out. So, on that basis it was timely that I had finished my crochet blanket. This is a pattern from Attic 24 called Sweet Pea. It is a very simple design […]

Easter Stitching.

Happy Easter! Regardless of what is happening in the world, the days still roll by and we reach special dates. I hope many children around the world get to have some fun celebrating Easter. I enjoyed using my Bertie’s Springtime as a backdrop for pictures today. This was a Bonnie Sullivan pattern. I realised I […]

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 […]

Little Bits.

It is always good to see progress on projects. This quilt is from Jen Kingwell of Amitie and is named Meadow. This is the centre panel. I now have to make the border which consists of 24 applique blocks. Lots of tracing and cutting before any stitching begins. A friend was working with some small […]

Stitching Along In April.

Stitching along slowly. Not a lot of big finishes, but several small ones. This is the second block for Dancing Chickens and Flying Pigs. I have also completed the February blocks for the Gail Pan BOM. I have nearly completed the March blocks so I am not too far behind. School holidays have started here […]
