Boy Scouts Quilt

Lucky me! Well, actually, Lucky David! :o) I received David's Boy Scout quilt back from Carol, all quilted BEAUTIFULLY! Remember, Carol and I have been *trading*, I pieced three quilt kits for her, and she quilted my trio's birthday quilts, that I will give them for their 13th birthday, this November. I definitely got the good end of this deal! :o) Here is David's quilt:
The binding is not on it yet, because they are on summer break, and I haven't had a chance to get it done. The binding is the red in that middle border. The trio went to a friend's house for just a little while this afternoon, and that is how I got time to get the pics taken without him seeing! (As long as Jimmy doesn't tell on me!)

In these blocks, Carol quilted the Fleur De Lis:

Here is the back of that block:

And then super-cool, in these full blocks, Carol quilted the words *Boy Scouts* -- see it there?! How cool is that?! :o)))

Here is the back of that block:
David is going to be THRILLED with this quilt! And I know the girls will love theirs too. In case you missed theirs, you can find Anna's HERE, and Elizabeth's HERE. Thank you again, Carol, from the bottom of my heart! I don't want my babies to be teenagers already, but I can't wait til November! :o)

Angela, I still think I got the better end of this deal we had, your piecing is perfection! I know the quilts will be loved and that is what it is all about.
We can always do more trading in the future if you want! Hugs to you!

Angela, wow nice quilts. I did miss the girls quilts but went back and looked at them. Very nice. I am sure that the tri will be surprised with them and treasure them always. The quilting is super!

Love it! This is such a unique quilt, both the fabrics and Carol's special quilting. One lucky young man is going to get a very special quilt one of these days.

Angela, that is amazing. Truly wonderful. He is going to love it! What special gifts for your kiddos!

I need to talk to you about possibly doing a quilt for me for Ben's Cub Scout patches. I have a design in mind but am feeling like I may never get to it. How is your custom quilt queue looking? I don't really need it for at least a year (and probably more like 2.)
