March's Great Escape Quilt Weekend - Burrgoyne Surrounded

The class for the Quilt Weekend was a mystery. The instructions were for a scrappy quilt - light, medium, and dark fabric.

The pattern reveled the Burgoyne Surrounded Quilt Block. I'm just getting back to the bits and pieces. My original background was a floral - pink flowers with green leaves on a dark field - I'm having trouble telling if it is Black or Navy.

I played with the lay out before I started sewing:
1. I loved the dark green with pink flowers and green leaves - but here it is overwhelming:

2. Using a white on white background looks good but also looks like every one else's.

3. So I decided to add a bit of the floral in place of all the white and I think I have the winner!

Time to start sewing the pieces together! Although it's not yet a finish, I thought I would link up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Fridays
