Playing with Girl Scouts Fabric


I just had to play with this Girl Scout fabric!  There are some free downloads on my website that use this cute collection.  They are found at the end of the Girl Scouts fabric collection.  There are also some free patterns at the end of the Boy Scouts collection.  All of these easy patterns can certainly be made in other fabrics!

First, I made the Friendship Quilt.  It uses 11 Fat Quarters plus backing and binding.  Two of the 11 FQ's have to be the same.  The Girl Scouts patterns are written for the young sewer so they're great for teaching kids to sew.  My friend, Sandy Pennington, is an amazing longarm quilter and she quilted it for me with flowers.  See the flower in the closeup of the Thin Mint fabric?

I'll be happy to make up kits for any of the downloads on request.

The quilt is a nice sized throw.... just right for a little Girl Scout!  Thanks so much for quilting it Sandy!

Next, I made a pillow case to match.  There's nothing like dreaming of Thin Mints!  The pillow case pattern is with the Boy Scouts fabric.  I also have this one with the little contrasting strip.  If you have trouble finding any of the patterns, let me know.

And finally, I made a rag quilt bag.  The pattern for the bag is on this blog- look over at the dozen bags posts.  This one is just like the pattern, EXCEPT that the squares I started with were only 4 inches and the batting was 3 inches.  I sold a lot of the flannel for mother/daughter bags in the 2 sizes.

If you've made a quilt or any project with the Girl Scouts fabric, send me a picture and I'll post it here.
