The simplicity and contrast of two color quilts have always drawn my attention. The only thing simple about this Burgoyne Surrounded quilt was choosing my fabric. There is an ever growing oops pile accumulating on my cutting and piecing tables.
After a quick google and pinterest search for patterns and inspiration I was really disappointed. There aren’t many design or layout options for this quilt. Is this not a popular quilt to make? Being the type who cannot leave well enough alone I had to modify the block. There is nothing wrong with being different right? So I hope it comes together as planned and I look forward to sharing my progress. Don’t hold your breath for a pattern or tutorial anytime soon though, I’m winging it.
My current goal is to use up all of the fabrics in my scrap drawer before purchasing more. Because mistakes happen when cutting I chose the fabric I had the most of which happens to be the green I used in Nostalgia Twist.
At the moment I am planning on nine 16″ blocks and I will set this on point to form a square in a square. Most likely it will grow.
The smallest blocks are 2″ square and the smallest patches are 1″ square. These are the smallest I have pieced without paper. There’s a lot of squaring up to be done. No pun intended.
