Burgoyne Surrounded Scrap Quilt Part 1

SCRAPS!  We all have scraps.  The real question is what to do with them.  I can't seem to let go of my Island Batik scraps.  They're so luscious.  BUT...when the bag started overflowing I knew it was time to get busy.  I pulled out my Accuquilt Go! Big and got busy!  Thank you Accuquilt and Island Batik for all this amazing fun! 

Here's one of the many piles I started with after a huge round of ironing.

I laid them out along my cutting die nicely and went to work cutting many, many, many 1 1/2 inch squares.  I still have more than half of them and the quilt is done....uh, oh.  I see another scrap quilt coming soon!

I am an obsessive pinner....this is what about 250 pairs of squares look slike.

And ironed...

And pinned for the next round...

Stay tuned!
I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. I love seeing all the Island Batik fabrics like that. I see a couple that I have in my stash.

    I am certainly not an obsessive pinner. For two squares, I almost never pin.

  2. Burgoyne is an awesome pattern for scraps. Nice seeing your squares and partial blocks.

  3. I love that you pin so much. I have tried three times to comment, but it is not loving me.....lets see if this works.

  4. Oh, I can't wait to see this! Do you pull your pins as you sew?

  5. When I have some free time I want to go through my island batik scraps and cut a bunch of squares and triangles for a scrappy quilt! Can't wait to see what yours looks like!
