    My Grandson's Boy Scout quilt top

    I made this Boy Scout quilt top for my 12yr old Grandson. I used Norman Rockwell panels and coordinating fabrics from the same line. First time using cut-apart panels. Not something I will do again. The panels aren't all exactly the same size and were very difficult to get close enough to fit together without losing parts of the image, especially the captions under each panel. At any rate, the top is done and I will be FMQ'ing the panels with a fleur-de-lis (Boy Scout insignia) design and I haven't figured out the sashing and border designs yet. His only specification was that it must be soft and cuddly. Fingers crossed on that one I have enough of the border and sashing fabric to make a matching pillowcase.

    Use "Control" key held down and press the "+" key until you get it where you want it. Then use the Control key again and the "-" key to get it back to the original...

    Thank you all. I don't usually post pics, but even though this quilt isn't fancy, it's very special to me. I made his first quilt when he was 4 and he loved it to death. He's been without one for over a year and he can't wait to get his new "big guy" quilt.
