    That Boy Scout can be proud of his accomplishments!! I would suggest a narrow border for this one!

    I would say your next border should be twice as big as the inner one, but if it’s for use make it as big as needed to cover him.

    Same size as the green and tan boarders you have on the inside. You just need a final frame around the quilt. Maybe a narrow stripe of black, to separate it from all the colors, then the regular width. Looks great. What color are you thinking about?

    I am sooo loving your boy scout quilt!!! I had to show Tu-Na Helper. He’s wondering if you backed the neckerchiefs? I think he’s thinking I should make one of these for our scouting sons. We had 4 of which 3 made it to Eagle and 1 to Life. This quilt is so cool. What a great memory quilt.

    What a great finished top! I love Quilting Tangent’s idea of a narrow black frame, then a border the same width as the green strips in the quilt. It doesn’t need much as there is so much interest in the blocks you made.

    The quilt is awesome – love the way the patches go round & round & round with the green & beige borders Just a narrow border – I’d go green top & bottom & beige on the sides! x

    What a great way to commemorate Scouting and use all the patches and kerchiefs. With a new Eagle Scout in our family, you’ve given me great inspiration. Thanks!
