Customer Reviews

Awesome for Inspiriation — Review by Paula
If you are looking for inspiration, the "New Quilts from Old Favorites" series will fill the bill. If you are looking for actual patterns to make the quilts featured... well keep looking. There are some patterns but nothing overly exciting!

I love the book for all the fresh bright ideas and the quilter's journey with making/designing their quilts. (Posted on 8/16/11)
Burgoyne Surrounded: New Quilts from an Old Favorite — Review by Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting
Overall Rating
The eighteen quilts shown in this book are winners and finalists from the annual New Quilts from an Old Favorite contest, sponsored by The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. The quiltmakers describe their quilts, each a variation of the classic Burgoyne Surrounded design, and share their thoughts from design idea to finished project. - Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting, July/August 2009, Page 96.
