Burgoyne Surrounded



Millie started piecing this quilt in the mid 80's, and lost steam with only a few blocks to go. She wondered whether I'd like to take over - um, yes!  Don't you love it when one quilter's burden becomes another's exciting new project?  It's a classic red, white and blue Burgoyne Surrounded.  Some of those pieces are teeny tiny!


I matched up the fabrics as best I could, finished piecing it, machine quilted it, and promptly gave it to Tommy.  He loves it and even brought it back to MA in his suitcase for the summer.  He likes the total American-ness of it.


That's a glimpse of Molly the poodle in the foreground.  She lives with friends while we're in Japan.
