    Boy Scout quilt 80 years

    I've sown clothing most of my life and always loved quilts. Some I've seen on QB are so far above my skill level, I can only dream. My father turns 93 next month and has spent 80 years in the BSA this year. I found the panels and some assorted pieces and wanted to make something he might appreciate. Thanks for looking at the final project. I've been reading QB for almost a year, but never tried to show any of my other projects.

    looks to me like you are ready for much more intricate patterns. don't sell your abilities short. just do it, as they say now-a-days. i am sure your father will love it.
