One of the scouts in our Boy Scout troop earned his Eagle rank recently (congratulations, Sam!).

His mother has been saving mementos of his scouting journey through the years and asked if I would make him a quilt to commemorate his scouting career. Of course I said "yes".

The quilt measures about 50" by 60". The front side background fabrics are uniform shirts, scouting t-shirts, and rank neckerchiefs. The backing fabric is navy cotton. The binding is leftover fabric from the back and the neckerchiefs.

I attempted to put the patches on the right neckerchief - wolf rank on the wolf neckerchief. The patches on the bottom half of the quilt are mostly Boy Scouting ones, earned at various events.

On the left side I left space for his merit badge sash and included a pocket for Webelos pins and any other pins. Sam earned Eagle before aging out of scouts and needed his sash for another year or so, so the sash was added after he received the quilt.

Again, congratulations Sam. We couldn't be prouder of you.
