    Every time you post a scouting project I pray that my brothers don’t see it. Two have been in scouting for years; one actually works for the scouts. If they saw this, I’m sure I would have a file of patches and kerchiefs at my door, waiting to be made in to a quilt! 🙂 Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    You’ll come up with a great idea…you’re very creative!

    You always come up with a super good idea!!! It’s not something that I would jump into because I wouldn’t know where to begin!!!

    those text charms are sweet. oh another boy scout quilt. woohoo!!! A medallion sounds interesting. a huge compass somewhere would also me cool, since a boy scout learns about his compass in life.

    I will be very interest to see this one. My husband’s nephew is a long time boy scout, not that I am going to volunteer to make him one but one never knows. I always love text fabric and your charms are great.

    A medallion sounds like an awesome idea. I will be looking forward to how you adhere all of those patches!

    I look forward to seeing what you do with your badges. I have girl scout badges I want to make into a quilt someday.

    thanks again for my win last week 🙂 Those charms would make for great coasters!

  12. Donna January 31, 2018 at 1:11 pm #

    So that is what I can do with all those Boy Scout patches that I found stuffed away.
    Text charms would go great with the quilt I am starting., thanks for giveaway.

    Not for giveaway. Lay out all the pieces. In my family the guys had red wool coats they would have all the badges/patches sewn onto. Maybe you could use red as the backround color. Talk to him and get feedback. Maybe big blanket or sew onto his sleeping bag.

    I made a t-shirt quilt once where I was asked to use a few patches. I don’t have any suggestions for the layout but I the one thing I did that made it easier for me was to sew the patches on after quilting. That way I didn’t have to go over them or around them. Those text charms are so cute!

    You are so brave to take on this project, but then again, with your ingenuity I know you’ll have a fabulous end product. I can’t wait to see what you do with it!! 🙂

    The white with gray squares fabric appeals to me.

  17. Rita Long January 31, 2018 at 6:15 pm #

    You are off on another adventure. I’m waiting to see where it goes.

    It will be fun to see how you develop a quilt with the bandanas and patches. Now I feel the guilty mom feeling because I put all my four son’s scout patches and bandanas in boxes and returned them to them.
