    Nope, no need for guilt. You were about your business, and someone asked, whatcha working on...so you showed them.
    Me? I can't post pics in progress of a project or I get completely "under pressure" and can't work! :roll:
    It's, either, - here, it's all finished, or nothing!
    I admire your courage, and your quilt is going to be spectacular. I like sharp, crisp colors :D

    Fighting p-monia here, but managed to get something accomplished yesterday.
    I now have the 4 patches done.

    When cutting the strips to mkae them, I layer them with the colors across from each each other, so that I can pick up the first 2 and they are ready to sew.

    And then I chain pieced them. Something I have learned to do here on this board. :D Sorta like peeling that apple, can I sew 80 4 patches with out having to break the thread. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    then cutting the threads and hand pressing them open.

    Here's what I have so far, 110 9 patches with 990 pieces in them
    80 4 patches with 320 pieces in them.


    This is a picture of all the pieces.
    The wide strip sets on the left are the next to do, I have already cut some of them into 1 1/2 inch segments. I have cut 80 of each, to be sewn into 80 rectangles.

    What pattern are you using? This is kind of like a mystery quilt, but you're doing all the work and we just get to watch! Whatever pattern it is, it's going to be beautiful--the blue and white are so crisp together! n Keep posting you progres, please!

    this pattern comes from a book called QUILTING, pieces of the past

    It is called BURGOYNE

    I can just keep going as I am , and you can watch the squares start to come together, which is what I was planning on doing, and let you see how it progresses.
    Or I can try to post a picture from the book of how it is supposed to look when it is finished?

    Or, for those of you who want to know now, you could PM me your e-mail address and I can send you a picture, that way everyone , including me, :D is happy!

    We just can't wait to see the finished quilt, Ninnie.
    I'm just going to wait until I see "yours".
    Seeing the step by step assembly is helpful and interesting.
    BTW, I really like navy and white! :lol:

    Oh Ninnie! That is one of my favorite patterns (especially in bue and white)!! It is on my to do list! A while ago, someone posted a link to Mary Koval Antique Quilts. She has a Burgoyne from 1854 for sale. Blue and white. The border is really interesting to.
    Here's the link: http://www.marykovalantiquequilts.com/Quilt%20Gallery, scroll down to the bottom of the page.

    I can't wait to see your's done!!! :D

    I guess it's not a Burgoyne Surrounded then? Interesting, I didn't know there were two with that name.

    I have this book! It's one of my favorites. I looked up the quilt that you are making and it's so cool!

    I am anxious to see yours and am enjoying the progress reports. :0)

    I guess that I am going to have to expand my quilting book library some, I have very few books. and just a few more magazines. I do have two books with just blocks in them that I love. And some even have big blocks with only a few pieces in them, one day I am going to have to try a few of them!
