Our oldest son just received his Eagle Scout badge. My husband and I were at a local fabric store and found this really cool Boy Scout fabric by Robert Kaufman, utilizing the pictures that Norman Rockwell did for the Saturday Evening Post.

Even though I am not a quilter, I had to do something with that fabric for our son.

The material had different scenes in panels.  I placed all of the panels around a center of muslin. At the celebration, Sharpie (brand) pens were handed out and everyone signed his quilt.



The back is another piece from the collection, some of you may recognize it from older Scout uniforms.



And a little jacket I just managed to get pictures of. The pattern is the Granny Square Shrug. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/granny-shrug-2



On the dreamcatchers. My husband is part Indian and this is just one of the skills that had been passed down in his family.  Smiley

What a lovely scout quilt! Makes me giggle because I had one of those hats. Scouts in Australia don't wear them anymore, they have Akubras instead. And no more khaki uniforms either, which I think is silly. How are you supposed to blend into the bush in a dark blue shirt and whatever pants you feel like wearing? At least they don't have to wear those horrid scratchy knee socks though.

I notice your quilt has blue and green uniforms on it, do they mean something different over there?

Thanks, I love hearing about the differences in Scouting all over the place.

These scenes were painted anywhere from I'd have to say the 1930s through the 1960s. I remember seeing pictures of my brother in a blue uniform nearly identical to the ones the youngest kids are wearing in that. (he is a bit older than I am )

Gorgeous scout quilt and quite an accomplishment for your son!  Congrats. 

Boy Scouts wear the green/khaki -ish uniforms.  The younger cub scouts have blue shirts.  Adventure scouts have a dark green shirt and den mothers can still choose a pretty yellow blouse... although I think most den mothers go for the regulation shirt these days.

The stuff that has been posted lately is brilliant!  You know what made me laugh about the Boy Scout quilt awesomeness?  It is how un-rotten your rotten little boy has to be to earn the Eagle Scout honor, rottenlittleboys! 

I am working on an embroidery kit for a swap partner -- it was the perfect theme and I thought I would take the opportunity to practice/learn stitches (my embroidery skills are fairly poor). 

I haven't really finished much except these capes I made for our Penguin Plunge (a jump into the lake here in VT in February to raise money for Special Olympics).  One is pictured but I made 2 -- one for me and one for a friend who also jumped. The picture stinks, I am sorry.  And please excuse my messy room!



We had a food swap at the UU society I belong to tonight.  It was so much fun!!

Rock on, all!

I'm way too behind to comment on everyone's awesomeness.  I almost didn't bother going through all the pages I was so far behind, but then I saw the peek of sheepBlue's Hunger Games bag and KriSmith's awesome TM wall hanging!  I would have been sad to have missed those!  Not to mention all the amazing-ness in between.

I'm not keeping up, but I do have one more item down:

Oooooh~ so many great new things!!!
I LOVE the functional stuffies!

I finished a few (very) little projects.

Two watercolor drawings. I'm not so happy with how they turned out...I somehow managed to get worse at drawing ^^;

One ear is much higher than the other o.o;


A bracelet I crochted out of sewing yarn. It was very easy to do, it just take longer than I expected since it hurts my eyes to crochet this small after a while.




A Totoro pop-up card

inside:


And some owl ATCs just for fun



Thanks for looking! I love this thread and check it everyday... without it I wouldn't have finished even half the stuff I have. It's so inspiring to see all the great projects poping up everyday =)

ZombieLili, your drawings are lovely, I think you're being too hard on yourself!

How many strands of thread & what size hook did you use for the bracelet? I love rainbows  Grin
