Oh Scrap! : Lucky Number Eight

I had a nice big block of sewing time Saturday afternoon so I thought I would cut and sew another Burgoyne Surround block.




This one is block number 8 out of 9.  It is probably my favorite so far.  Not just because I really like the fabrics in it but it is the first block that I completed without having to get out my seam ripper.

I am sure that now means my next block will be a total mess!


******************************************

It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up:

A very good reason why this is your favorite of the bunch! It gets frustrating ripping seams, even if it's for the greater good!

Gotta love it when scrap comes together! Pretty block.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

it is always so nice when the seam ripper doesn't need to come out to play. 8 out of 9 blocks! almost ready to put it together looking forward to see the end result

Chantal said...

I really love this one too. Maybe it's the color combo that makes it so sweet to my eyes. Good luck with number 9. ;^)

Quilty Fred said...

That's a great block, and I love your fabrics too. Maybe the next one will be as easy as this one ;)

Kate said...

Congrats on finding some stitching time this weekend. Your block turned out beautifully!

MartiDIY said...

That is a beautiful block, and it looks absolutely perfect. It looks really difficult too. I'm sure the next one will go smoothly now that you are in the groove.

It's always reason to celebrate when you don't need the seam ripper! I really like that lighter blue print!

chrisknits said...

LOL, you’ve ginxed yourself now! Lovely block.

Gail Sheppard said...

Yeah!!! (for not having to use a seam ripper!!! :-) ~ Quilting Gail

Ivani said...

Another beauty block. Just one more and you will made, another beautiful quilt I am sure.

Linda @ kokaquilts said...

Yes, another lovely block! How long does it take to make each one, without unpicking?

Kristin said...

I love blue and grey together. This will be an amazing quilt!

gayle said...

Hurray for painless Burgoynes! It always cracks me up that we finally get good at assembling these complex blocks right at the point we're done making them!

Louise said...

I used my seam ripper a whole bunch today, so the universe remains balanced. I'm glad you got the benefit of the other end of the spectrum, especially on a BS block! :)

Ann said...

If you were me, that's exactly what it would mean. They are all enticing.

Bonnie said...

I'm sure your "best friend" missed spending quality time with you. Luckily I scatter seam rippers all around the sewing area as well as in the room with the TV. It's always handy if needed! Glad you didn't need it.

Jocelyn Thurston said...

This is such a beauty of a block and that touch of purple/mauve adds so much to it.

Angie said...

Love your Burgoyne fabrics! LOL about the seam ripper - my most recent BS avoided the ripper, too, so I guess my next one is cursed as well!

KatieQ said...

It's a great feeling not to have to pull out the seam ripper. Some days, I spend more time taking stitches out than I do sewing. I've been enjoying seeing your progress on these blocks.
