    Looks pretty, even thought the photo is really dark. Can you post a photo shedding better light? Please and Thank You?

    I am only seeing the original dark photo ... I too would love to see this one! Burgoyne is one of my favorite traditional patterns.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    here is the link to where i made this one, one of my favorites. love the old patterns, and the way the women made them without all the modern things we have to work with.

    It is beautiful!!! I have the pattern hanging on my cork board, in the to do list. It looks so great with the dark background and white checks. Wonderful job.

    Oh, Ninnie, it is beautiful! I love that pattern and the navy and white are perfect for it! Enjoy it every time you slumber with it.

    what a wonderful quilt!!! I own a piece of a linsy woolsy woven bedcover in blue and white (made circa 1820). It has a similar feel to it.
