Oh Scrap! : More BS

I finally found some time to get back to an older project that has been waiting for one last block.



 Here is my final Burgoyne Surround block!  I did have to go buy a fat quarter of the blue fabric.  Everything I had just wasn't quite the right shade.  I even tried to hit a friend's stash but her blues were all wrong too.



Here are all the blocks together.  Now I need to work on the pieced sashing and borders.  If I remember correctly, the blocks finish at 16" so right now this quilt is not that big.  I hope to fix that without making more blocks.

I just hope this project doesn't continue to languish as I think about next steps!

I've always liked those blocks! Glad you're ready to move them on! Are you adding a sashing to them?

Jayne said...

I think your BS quilt is coming along beautifully! I just cannot believe you didn't have the exact right blue in your stash!

Barb Neiwert said...

LOL, everyone is laughing out here when we read you had to go buy a bit of fabric! Shock and awe!!! Glad you did, because the quilt top is looking great! I was also thinking that if it were me, and I didn't have a plan for the sashing, etc., those blocks would lay in a drawer for centuries. But I'm confident you'll get them together in no time!

Beautiful! Good luck with the finishing touches. ;^)

Kate said...

Congrats on finishing off that last block. It's a very fun quilt, but oh those blocks have such small little pieces.

Frédérique said...

These blocks are just perfect! Beautifully done, it's going to be a gorgeous quilt with borders and what you plan to add next ;)

Totally worth the effort AND the extra fabric purchase!!

So happy to see your BS blocks come out to play! Wide sashing, with 9-patches as the cornerstones, will painlessly add lots of size to the top. Can't wait to see your finish!

Cool-looking Burgoyne blocks - fun to see them all in one colorway!

Blues are the most prevalent color in my stash, but I had an amazingly difficult time finding the just right 4 darks and 4 lights for my recent project. Your blocks look great. I have always liked that block. One day - maybe.

Denise said...

This looks great. I have been toying with ideas for a Burgoyne Surround since seeing one on television.

Nann said...

I've seen many Burgoyne Surrounded quilts but none with a different color in the center. It's very effective!

Your title grabbed me! Do you ever play the card game BS? ha ha! Love your blocks they look great!

Cathy said...

I really like your BS in the one colorway. It looks very elegant.

Susie Hoover said...

Glad you're making progress on this one. Curious how you'll make it larger without making more blocks!

Ann said...

Finishing each step creates a warm glow of accomplishment. Congratulations. It's a perennial favorite.

What a gorgeous quilt. I want to make one like that!

Susan said...

That is looking quite classy - love your color choices and placement!

Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts said...

Oh, I really like those blocks and how they look when layed out together. It will be fun to see how you finish this quilt top! Thanks for sharing on MCM. :)

My friends and I did a quiltalong on the Burgoyen Surrounded. Here is a link to my post about it. https://cozy-quilts.ca/2017/10/20/surrounded-by-friends/

Fabric choices sure make a difference.
