Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

A May Break.

Time for me to take a blog break. No posts or making comments for the month of May. I will jump back in with lots of enthusiasm in June. Maybe these will be ripe by then?

Be Quick Before November Finishes.

Just a little bit busy here. Lots being done in November, but not all to do with sewing. However, there have been a few small finishes. I have been asked to make some small panel quilts. These small blocks came together easily with some red sashing. I found a suitable Christmas backing. Not a great […]

Over the Hill And Far Away.

This quilt is a design by Wendy Williams named Over The Hill. When I first saw it, the curved backgrounds for the blocks took my interest straight away. And of course I love working with the wool felts. It was easy to work on as the design was broken into smaller sections, making it very […]

Triangles Abound.

It is time for me to get a few quilts finished. Quite a few tops are done but of course they need sandwiching and quilting. I decided to start with the biggest one first. This one ended up at 65 X 86 (inches). It is made from half square triangles made from a range of […]

A Flimsy In A Flash.

Sewing here at the moment is still mostly taken up with finishing off different bits and pieces. But I did get distracted enough to make a quilt top. I found a little bundle which contained some yardage and two charm packs. It was a line of fabric from many years ago – maybe 10 or […]

Sunny New Year.

A New year. Time to start a fresh year of blogging. Lots of sunny days already. And these beauties opened to start the New Year as well. Some stitching has been happening. This is the second panel of Over The Hill (Wendy Williams). I have really enjoyed selecting fabrics for this quilt – the deck […]

Farewell, 2020.

I think this message from the little gnome in our garden says it all when it comes to 2020. It has been such a different year, but not all was bad. Let’s hope we can all start off fresh in the New Year. I have positive news about my blog. My wonderful web master (son) […]

December, 2020.

2020. Certainly a year that will not be forgotten in a hurry. Here in Victoria, Australia we are having a lovely December. After our total lock down we have experienced 60 days without community transmission. That has been a wonderful achievement and well worth all those stay at home days. With our new found freedom […]

Keep On Finishing.

Trying to keep working on UFOs can be challenging when new projects want a turn, too. So now I am going one for one. I completed a Cherie Payne project I had lingering on a shelf for quite a while – maybe from the Christmas before last. Just a small mini wall quilt. Each block […]

Finally – A Sewing Room To Use – And A Word Of Warning.

If my blog posts are anything to go by, it looks like I have dropped off the face of the earth. And as far as sewing goes it is quite true. About the only stitching that has been done was at sewing groups and classes. All my time at home has been setting up the […]
