Scout quilt, beginning.


I don't normally purchase quilt patterns.  Even though I'm relatively new at quilting, I like to figure everything out for myself.  Looking at this great pattern from Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew, I know I needed to purchase the pattern.  So, I did.

Here is the fabric I've chosen, I think it's a good mix.

I edited the photo to B&W, so I could see if I had enough contrast.  Lots of mediums, but I think it'll work.

Did you know that I was a Girl Scout.  I was active in scouting almost up until the time I got married.  That's how I met Bob, in scouting.  He was a Sea Scout and I was a Mariner Scout.  All this took place in Long Beach, CA.
May your bobbins always be full,

  1. Great idea to look at it in black and white. I'd never heard of it before.
    Mys husband was a scout too.
