    I was asked to make a "Badge" quilt as a fundraiser for the local Explorer group. Cherokee county does a wonderful job of engaging and inspiring at risk youth. It was my pleasure to create this for them.

    Badges are from all parts of the US

    Way cool! My son has a bunch of badges, but not that many! I sewed them all on a jacket of a fireman puppet. It's cute, but not nearly as impressive as this quilt you've done!

    What a wonderful idea! My husband used to be a police officer and he has collected patches from all over the United States. His mother had them mounted and framed on a mat under glass. The mat is kinda getting faded. Wonder if I could convince him to let me make a quilt like this for him. It is a wonderful quilt and I know it will raise alot of money.

    Thanks-

    Sheila
