Burgoyne surrounded by Irish 32 and 33

This design really shows the contrast between Double Irish Chain and Burgoyne Surrounded … one looks like a lead weight, the other looks like a bit of lace! Makes an interesting mix!

There isn’t actually any Irish Chain blocks in this design … Burgoyne is surrounded by the ‘filler’ block I chose to include in this series!

Love the circles created in the Burgoyne Surrounded blocks.

    It is always amazing how a single block can change the feel of a pattern.


    • Karen,

      It is also amazing that evne when I break the rules for combining blocks … good things still happen.

      The rule in this case is that you should always use blocks drafted on the same grid. It is a good rule, in that cutting and piecing can be easier, and there is a lot of flow between blocks which are drafted on the same grid, which means a lot of blurring of the lines between the blocks. But it is a rule worth breaking.

  2. This is cool! I never would’ve thought to combine these two blocks!
