    My little Sara is a Daisy Scout and sold over 200 boxes this year. Her mom was one of the very first Daisy Scouts and went on up to Cadette Scouts. She followed her mother's footsteps (me) as I started as a Brownie and went up through Cadettes as well.

    This year I plan to make Sara's new quilt with these fabrics. I also have some left overs from years ago, but I'm not sure they fit in - what do you think?

    Did I mention I was a Brownie leader for several years too. And once I was the area coordinator for Coronado, CA. That was a lot of years ago!

    This line is a Robert Kaufman line.

    The brownie on white sure brings back memories! Only one flavor of cookies...trefoils (@ 50cents a box)...my mom was one of the brownie leaders back in the 50's when I was in 2nd & 3rd grade. Then my daughter was in scouts till 6th grade and I was a leader 2 or 3 of those years.

    Use all the fabrics...let it tell a story...

    Those are wonderful fabrics. I have some of them too. DGD is bridging this year and I want to make her a girl scout quilt. I can't wait to see yours.

    Oh, I just had a flashback of DD in her Brownie uniform. She too had sold the most in her troop and district. I was so proud of her.

    Love the fabrics. She will love the quilt.
