    My neighbor's son has achieved his Eagle Scout level, and his awards ceremony is next week. As a present to him for his excellent achievement, I made him a quilt with the Boy Scout fabrics from the Robert Kaufman line. I always use some type of decorative stitching to finish off my bindings; so, I picked the arrowhead for his quilt. All of my work (piecing, quilting, and binding) was done on vintage sewing machines that are all in treadles.

    It was a fun project with all my vintage machines at work!
    I can't wait to tell him that a couple of ninety year old machines help create this quilt.

    It was the second time for me working with the Kaufman fabrics. First time was the Bali Pops that I used in my half-hexi quilt that I post on QB. I do like working with the Kaufman fabrics too!

    I am proud to say that my son also achieved his Eagle Scout Rank and wish this fabric was around at that time.

    It is a beautiful quilt and I know it will be much appreciated.

    I love the quilt.
    What a blessing and a loving gesture.
    Love the arrowhead stitches.
    Did you use a top hat cam for those stitches?

    Blessings,
    Sandi
