Boy Scouts and quilt finish

I finally remembered to take a photo of David in his full Boy Scout uniform the other night. Gotta love a guy in uniform! He was going to a City Council meeting, where one of our local scouts was receiving an award. David has 7 merit badges on his sash, with 3 more badges coming. He has been in Scouts since first grade, and still loves it. (For those that are not familiar with Scouts, you start as a Cub Scout in first grade, then during fifth grade, they *cross over* to Boy Scouts. David crossed over to Boy Scouts in February 2009.) I am proud of him! (Oh and he got a much-needed hair cut the day after this pic! HA!) This was a quilt that I just finished up for a customer, she is giving it as a Christmas gift. It was alot easier than it looks, and has 5 borders, which added to the size quickly, with alot of visual interest. I love the way the blocks create a secondary pattern. :o)
I am working on a little flannel quilt for us now. I had a couple of *Kiddie Christmas* flannel charm packs, and found some additional yardage, and am making a little throw for on the couch. It is going to be yummy - I love flannel! :o) Hopefully I will have a picture to show soon. We are baking Christmas cookies over the weekend, so that may delay the quilt some... :o)
Thanks for visiting!

Congrats to your son. I am glad he is staying with the scouting.He looks just like you. The quilt is very pretty. I too love flannel and I should make a flannel quilt. I made my daughter some flannel pillow cases she wanted and thought why don't I do this for me?
