Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Tags And Hour Glasses.

Posted on | November 8, 2012 | 12 Comments

The hour glass blocks have been completed and put together.  Simple borders have been added and the result is a completed quilt top.


I had to battle with the grape vine for position on the fence.  As well as using fabrics from the Sleepytime range, I added some solids in matching pastels. It needs to wait to be quilted until I buy some white, rather than natural, coloured batting.

I have also completed a couple of smaller items, both for our Grandson. He loves playing with the tags on his toys, so these are perfect for him.


The giraffe pattern is from Craftin”It and can be found at this link.

The little square with all the tags is from Flying Blind On A Rocket Cycle and can be found at this link.

Both are super easy to make and are great little gifts.

  • Anita Hayes says: Hi Karen, Love your tags and hourglasses quilt and I'm glad you won the fight with the grapevine too!! I had to laugh about your grandson loving the tags on his toys. When my boys were little they would often leave their brand new toys laying on the floor and play in the cardboard boxes the toys came in!! lol Cheers, Anita.
