boy scout project – row by row + giveaway

boy scout project update
today I thought I would return to my boy scout project and give you an update…

boy scout quilt
I knew I wanted to use this cool constellation neckerchief for the center…
one GREAT tip I received from my long-arm quilter was to use woven fusible interfacing for the neckerchiefs to give them more body…
oh my goodness, this was the BEST advice!
they lay so nicely and are a dream to work with!

since my brother-in-law wants this as large as I can, I will be adding borders of the Kona after each round…

here you can see that I have patches sewn together with a neckerchief at the end of the row…

I also began to experiment with using patches with the same size, but different backgrounds in each round…

I also decided to pull apart a sash with a red embroidered arrow and added it to one row…

    Your boy scout project looks great. I love the way you are including blue-backgrounds in the rounds with more neutral backgrounds. Really adds a spark!

    Nice scraps–especially the red pluses and blue wisps. I’m feeling summery today. 🙂

    The Boy Scout piece looks great. Thanks for mentioning the using interfacing with kerchiefs. I sometimes pick them up when one catches my eye. I save my scraps and recently found such an excellent inspiration for piecing them into quilt blocks. the improvisation appeals to me. Thanks for blogging. I sure enjoy visiting here.
    xx, Carol

    All scraps are fun, especially when they are from someone else’s stash and not what you have previously used and perhaps are tired of looking at. I love when I go to a local guild quilt show and they have boxes of scraps for sale, so much fun to see what you can find and then so much fun to continue when you start using the odd shape scraps.
