Aqua, Teal, Turquoise: Bits and Pieces Edition


Burgoyne Surrounded 
From scrappy bits and pieces of aqua (plus)
These are large blocks and after adding sashing 25 of them will make a 93 x 93 quilt. 


I made one block last month from scrappy bits and pieces of purple to see if I liked it.  I did so decided if I need 25 blocks for a quilt I would make two blocks per month.  So here's my second purple block. 


I used aqua waste triangles and 2 inch scraps to make some little wonky stars that will finish at 4.5 inches. 


Waste triangles also went into some 4 inch butterflies.   I've been using waste triangles and blue tone on tone scraps to make these.   

Got scraps?

It is hard for me to resist any kind of stars. The teal ones look fabulous.

The sort of argyle look of Burgoyne Surrounded, with your plaid fabrics, is going to be a really amazing combination! And I love those stars too. Looking good, Cathy!

Beautiful. One can never go wrong with stars. Especially wonky stars.

Those Burgoyne blocks are really something! The purple one is lovely. So many great teal blocks also. Keep up the good work!

So many pretty teal scrappy quilt blocks here, very nice. If you keep going like this you are going to have a pile of quilts.

It doesn't look like you wasted a thing and your twin blocks are going to make a great quilt.

Great blocks! Thanks for the idea for my waste triangles. Now mine will all go into their own little box to be used for butterflies!

I think Burgoyne Surrounded is going to be one of my favourites.

You have such a unique and marvelous way of using prints. And this time you proved my point by using a solid.

I wouldn't have thought of making Burgoyne Surrounded with scrappy backgrounds - it's going to be fabulous! (The list of quilts you inspire me to want to make just keeps getting longer and longer. Good thing I'm planning to live to be 300...)
I love the way you play!
