I know I have commented in recent posts how we seem to have had an extended Summer, so it will come as no surprise when I say that Winter has finally hit. I think it really hits home when the mornings are cold enough for the heater to go on. Definitely time for slippers.

I am working on keeping with my finishing off theme and have completed a small quilt that will end up as a picnic blanket or table cloth.

Sunburnt Quilts - Scrap Log Cabin 2016) (1)

This was made from some log cabins I worked on in a scrap class and used the leftover fabrics from quite a few projects.

I kept it light by using a cotton batting in the sandwich.

Then I played with a few different quilting designs. I haven’t done any FMQ for a while so it was good to get back into it.

I used a Rosalie Quinlan fabric from my stash for the backing and then finished off with black and white binding.

The next quilt is ready for quilting, also. It is the Lynette Anderson design, Fern Hill. All the embroidery, applique and piecing is finished and once the quilting is done I can finally sew the buttons on. Hooray!

I have to do some showing off with the next photo.

Sunburnt Quilts - Handspun wool Jacket) (1)

My husband has made this toddler jacket from scratch. He carded the fleece, spun it into yarn and then knitted the jacket. This is going to be so warm and cozy in Winter. I love it.

Looks like that’s my lot for today. Have a great week.

Cheers, Karen

    I did a doubletake, & had to re-read that your husband made the beautiful cardigan. Such a treasure! The sweater too ;)

    Now your guy is a husband with skills! That little sweater is heirloom worthy. You should stitch a tag to the inside so future generations will know how precious it is.

    I like the fabrics in your quilt. Those bits of red really pop!

    Wow! Your husband made that? Amazing!!! I love that quilt, the squares on the border add a lot of interest. For someone who hasn’t FMQ in a while you did very good!
