Hello to all,
I wanted to share some APQquiltalong eye candy and thank my friends that did this virtual quiltalong with me.

What is so amazing to me about quilting is that this is a classic Burgoyne surrounded block named after General John Burgoyne’s surrender at Saratoga in 1777. Nothing earth shattering about the pattern, it is a variation of Double Irish chain, yet the fabrics used make each version wonderful.
One more little bit of info. I wanted to show a snapshot of the pinterest board, #APQquiltalong. Follow me on Pinterest to see the actual board. There are many more versions to tempt you to make this quilt if you have not started yours yet.
Now that we have accomplished celebrating the General Burgoyne through this quiltalong, maybe we should move on to General Beauregard from Barbara Brackman’s Book, Facts & Fabrications-Unraveling the History of Quilts and Slavery.
No seriously, moda has so many great indigo’s coming, I may have found my perfect project.
Thank you following the quiltalong, as well as my blog.
I really enjoyed seeing all the great quilts that were made in this quiltalong. It's given me lots of ideas for when I actually start one.
Helen, I am glad you have some inspiration for this project. It is alot of piecing but it is well worth it.
I have really enjoyed looking at all the wonderful quilts they are L-O-V-E-L-Y! I especially like (love) the pretty delicate little squares in white… they are not only beautiful, they are soooOOOOooo clever too!
Many thanks for sharing
Bye, Jay x
These are all so wonderful!
Such a great post! I didn't realize there were so many on the Pinterest board now…I need to go look at them all closer!
It was such a wonderful quilt to make Lissa! Thank you for the pattern and the wonderful inspiration! It's one of my favorites!!!
