Same Old BS (Burgoyne Surround)

Back in the beginning of August, I did a quick count of all the projects I had in the works.  I was dismayed to see it has risen to 24 items.  Ugh!  Since then, I have been making an effort to get that number down to under 20 again.  I am happy to report, that number is now 18!

And I am still motivated to get that number even lower.

Remember these pretty Burgoyne Surround blocks I was making?

I just moved them to the design wall in my sewing room and hope to focus on getting them made into a quilt top.  I just need to track down some fabrics for the sashing and make a few more cornerstones.

I recently bought a lovely royal blue fabric for the backing so I am all ready to move this one to the finished pile!

My new goal is to get my WIPs down to 15!

Linking Up:


  1. I certainly remember these blocks. Congratulations on getting your WIPs under 20 and I look forward to seeing how you finish and quilt this one!

  2. I love this one. Great job on your WIP list. Wish I could say the same about mine. ;^)

  3. I remember this project...I like it a lot! I look forward to seeing the finish!

  4. Hooray for making progress on things! That is my goal this week, too.

  5. This is going to be a beauty! And so good to be able to make a dent in your WiP pile.

  6. I love those blocks! They almost tempt me to start a new project, not that I need to!

  7. I love it when you post photos of these blocks. I lose myself staring at them - like a painting in a museum!

  8. Haven't seen this project in a while! I bet those blocks are happy to be occupying the design wall. Best of luck on whittling down your project list!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each and every one and try to respond with an email.
