    In your scrap pile, I spy some pretty pinks-and-oranges. That’s always a fun combo.

    Great work on the Eagle Scout quilt. That is a big accomplishment for a young man, and deserves recognition. A special quilt like this will be treasured.

    wonderful fabrics. I cant wait to see the completed quilt. I have a soft spot for Eagle Scouts. My son was an Eagle Scout along with some of his buddies. Since then, some friends have had Eagle Scouts. I love helping them become young men of virtue and independence.

    Your Eagle scout project will include the oars from the 2016 Quilt MN Shop hop and the fish from the 2017 Quilt MN Shop Hop. I know as I bought lots of that fabric. It will be very nice! What size will you make it? My three sons are Eagle scouts and the fourth is a black belt in Taekwondo. I never thought to make them quilts.

    That tent block is perfect for the Eagle scout project. What a fun quilt to make and inspiring for young men.

    I have a young scout but now I am going to be looking for fabric I can set back in hopes I need an Eagle rank gift one day! Love it!

    All of these posts (I’m late getting here) are so interesting and delightful to see. Your Eagle Scout Quilt will be a Keepsake FOR SURE. Isn’t quilting fun and satisfying? I never get tired of every step of the process. I love you and think you have been my best student… 🙂 Love you, ~Mom
