    Burgoyne Surround Quilts x 2 scrappy style

    Someone had posted this type of quilt and I knew I just had to make a scrappy one. Well, one turned into 2 and now I have two wedding presents ready to mail away one to Canada and one to Michigan. The largest one is going to my teacher friend who moved, the center of each block is the same to represent Heather and all the scrappy pieces represent the people that have been touched by her warmth. The smaller quilt is for the daughter of the teacher with whom I worked the most for in Canada, Gail's daughter married a young fella from Holland so I added a blue border for his home land ( you know blue and white always seemed to be Dutch colors to me.) I love scrappy quilts and put a good dent in my scraps and odd fat quarters.

    Your quilts are beautiful - I like the border on the 1st one. This is on my bucket list. Just hope mine turns out 1/2 as nice as yours.

    These are lovely. This is a pattern that I've wanted to do for a long time. Now you've sold me on a scrappy version.

    I used the book called "Burgoyne Surround by Elizabeth Hamby Carlson the pattern is Fat Quarter Fancy. One quilt is 6 x6 - 15 inch blocks and the other is 5x5 - 15 inch blocks. It is made with strip sets using 1.5 and 2.5 strips and background rectangles. If you are going to make this make sure you have LOTS of background fabric (I only used one fabric for background) - I used nearly 2 bolts on the two quilts and was lucky that Hancock Fabrics had another bolt in their warehouse - kudos to them. One quilt is a very generous queen and the other is as big as the king size quilt batting. Have fun if you go for it, and I just remembered there is an error on page 46 the last row of the quilt they have used 9 patches all across the bottom and it should be like the sides and top with the edge being solid.

    Lovely quilts!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    What a thoughtful, caring person you are to build these two beautiful quilts with such sentiment!
    So how long do you figure it took you to cut and piece one of them?
