    My daughter was in Girl Scouts for 12 years. She graduated from high school in May. As a thank you to her leader for 12 years of wonderful leadership, I made her a quilt from fabric I purchased from Hancocks of Paducah. It was 20 fat quarters of girl scout fabric. I used the yellow brick road pattern. I think it turned out OK. It made the leader cry. :oops:

    Very nice quilt and a nice thing to do. Where would we be without dedicated leaders in scouts, church, 4-H, etc?

    Brings back good memories of my Girl Scout days.
    Going to Juliet Low Home was a great experience as a scout.
    Thanks for the leaders then and today.

    What a wonderful thoughtful thing for you to do! Her reaction speaks for how much she loved it. Your daughter is beautiful and what a smile! It just lights up the room! Tell her congrats on her graduation.

    Well, of course she cried! It's beautiful! Wish they had had girl scout fabric back in the '60s.

    Having once been a Girl Scout leader (but not for THAT long), I can tell you that your quilt meant the world to her! What a very nice thing for you to do, and the quilt is awesome! You've made someone very happy!

    Thank you for all the great comments! I love to give quilts to those who really appreciate them. My daughter's girl scout leader is one who does appreciate hand made things. It certainly does my heart good to see the smile on her face. I know she will love and cherish it forever. My daughter wrote a note to her which is written on muslin on the back of the quilt. :-)

    Thank you for sharing your quilt!What a great idea, where did you find the pattern at? I am a leader for my daughter's troop (4 years now) and I purchased a fat quarter pack last fall and I still have not figured out what pattern to use to make a quilt for my daughter! I bought yardage of the GS cookie fabric for our Cookie booth tables, it was a great touch and helped with sales!

    I used the yellow brick road pattern. If you google the pattern name, you will find places to buy it. I really love that pattern.
