Let's be clear. I started making a Burgoyne Surrounded quilt because I fell in love with Cathy's blocks when she started hers.
At first I was just going to make one block, to try out the pattern. That plan lasted about 5 minutes.
Then I figured I'd make 4 blocks for a nice wall quilt or table topper. Yeah, another failed plan.
Well, nine blocks would make a nice baby quilt. But I blew right past nine and headed for twelve.
But twelve was totally going to be IT, 3x4, nice lap quilt, done now, no, really.
When I hit sixteen, I was definitely done done done, I'm so done, no more blocks, nice big square couch quilt, no more blocks.
Number seventeen happened the other day.
Followed by number eighteen...
And number nineteen is all cut out and ready to go.
And number twenty - fabric pulled, and starting to cut the bits.
I swear on a stack of Quilter's Newsletters that I'm going to stop at twenty blocks. That's a full-sized big honkin' quilt. I'm now up to my earlobes in full-size quilt tops. (Note to my kids - if you see one of my quilts that you really really want, speak up and if I ever finish it, it's yours!)
And look - I really do have to stop now. Burgoyne is currently also trying to surround Ringo Lake.
If I make any more blocks, it's going to ooze over this whole side of the state...
