Burgoyne Surrounded Sew-Along

I'd like to join!

Some months ago I saw this quilt in internet and fell in love with it:


I think it's a scrappy version of the Burgoyne Surrounded... isn't it?

I could'nt find the directions, but I was so motivated that I drew my own pattern (I hope this is not a problem for this 'sew along') and even tested it making my first (and only) block:


However, I found it was very time consuming (with all those tiny scraps) and always seemed something crossed on the way... so I let it aside, then time passed and I couldn't find the moment to start again. Every time I see the block hanging in the wall of my sewing room, I wish I could be able to advance... but I'm afraid I need some encouragement.

If you let me join, this would be a great chance for me to continue.

Please, let me know if I can take part of this

That block is so pretty, Silk!

I really want to join in! I'm wondering how this quilt would look made from checkered cotton shirts. I think the pattern would make a great guy quilt.

Thank you! I'm in

I can't wait to start, see you here this Friday! I'm sure I'll find the much needed inspiration reading your words and seeing your pictures. There are so many diferent possibilities with this pattern, this was what captivated me when I first discovered.

Wow, this is a very interesting idea!

Hey roguequilter, thanks for the info on washing scraps. Dah I should've used my "delicate" cycle, something not in this farm wife's vocabulary I even had my scraps sorted into light and dark reds, and now have to re-sort! Not sure where to place the darks...essentially will have 3 color quilt. Looked for background fabric at work but didn't see any I liked unless I go with a small cream tone on tone. I've been using my light scraps in other quilts.

Pretty block, Silk.

Silk, The feather quilting motif is lovely on the blocks of the quilt in the link you posted! There were lots of quilts sewn in this color scheme after 'Tone It Down' was published. http://www.vintagemodernquilts.com/2...osing-fabrics/

I have far too many PhD's (Projects Half Done) to even consider this, but wanted to wish everyone well. I'm looking forward to seeing the quilts. Maybe I'll even make one block as a mini quilt or table topper. It's a beautiful quilt, and a reminder that our forefathers overcame serious odds in their battle for freedom.
