    Congratulations, it's a high honor to have an eagle scout in your home. My husband and our son are both eagle scouts. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get there. Good luck on the quilt. I'm sure it will be a hugh surprise.

    I have just completed a boy scout quilt for our neighbor's son. He is 14 and is also preparing for Eagle Scout. While I was in Michigan I visited the Mary Maxim store in Port Huron and found more boyscout fabric which was different than my quilt front. So of course, I had to get that too. Now he will have a reversible boyscout quilt!!! I just have to quilt and bind it. :lol:

    I was able to make a quilt while the little guy was in school took me 2 days to make a twin size. He did not know I did it! He got it for Christmas 2 yrs ago and has it on his bed year round. Your little guy will love it!

    How awesome. Congratulations to your son, and I'm sure he will love the quilt.

    My son in law was an eagle scout. Last summer I was visiting his mother, and she was getting ready to throw out all of his scout badges, clothes, etc. I was appalled - and snatched it all out of the garbage sack for him. One day I'm hoping that he will ask me to make him a quilt....

    My son is an Eagle Scout. I'be bought some material too and plan to make a quilt for him. I was thinking of using his class B T shirts and combine that with the scouting material. Does anyone have any pics they could post of a quilt they did?

    Congratulations to your son and family for such an achievement! Please post once you have finished. FYI: Robert Kaufman has a free pattern on their website using the Boy Scout fabrics. http://www.robertkaufman.com/quiltin..._scouts_quilt/

    Congratulations to your both! My son also is an Eagle and I know the amount of encouragement it takes during that last year for a scout to reach the rank of Eagle. What a goal! My son is now in his mid thirties but still is proud of his achievement. He just stands a little taller and is a little more confident when ever the topic of this level of achievement comes up.

    One of my most special moments in life was when he pinned the Mother pin on to my jacket during his ceremony. Have your tissues at hand. You will need them.

    The quilt is a marvelous idea. I hope we all get to see it when you finish. I have purchased some scouting fabric to add to a promised quilt for my son that will highlight his interests over time. This quilt is on my "someday soon" list. Congratulations again.

    I understand. My almost 16 year-old DGS is becoming an Eagle Scout soon too. I asked him if he would like a quilt out of boy scout fabric and he said, "Absolutely NOT!" But my DGD is a girl scout and LOVES her GS quilt I made her.
