My Godson applied about 18 months ago for his Eagle Scout and submitted his project. I went searching for fabric, lucked out and found 2 panels but no coordinates. Apparently it is out of print and terribly expensive. After all how hard can it be to match the panels, um yea, VERY! Last month he submitted his paperwork and it was accepted. Guess I better get going on that quilt. I thought I got this! After all I have a sizeable stash, I would just start digging. Found some and started cutting. What I learned: 1. I have a lot of greens and none of them are BS green. 2. If all panels are printed like this, I will never use another one. 3. I finished the top and am grateful I have to do only one.
I am sure he will love it and any "little" puffiness from the panel stretching or whatever it did, I can quilt out. I used the other panel whole and as part of the backing. I'll show it to you when I finish it. His reception will be at a Firehouse on March 5th and we are so excited to go and watch this wonderful young man receive his award.

Have you all heard about Pat Sloan and the "Splendid Sampler". Many Designers and 100 blocks (6 inch). Well here is my first, Hearts Aflutter by Pat Sloan.

I have been collecting batiks for a bit now and have only made one quilt from them and that was made using a jellyroll. This looks like the perfect project for them. I used variegated thread for the buttonhole stitch but did not show up as well as I would have liked. 
Linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times, maybe....yup for Design Wall Monday!

As Always,



  1. Ohhh love your Splendid block... I must get going on mine!

  2. Kathy, I think this one will be fun. We can do 2 blocks a week, right?

  3. The quilt for your godson is so nice. It is amazing how difficult it is to match colors sometimes. Love your Splendid block!

    1. Thanks! Are you working on the Splendid Sampler? I did not need another project but....

  4. Congratulations to your Godson! My son and husband are also eagle scouts, and I can appreciate all the learning and work that goes into it. Love the quilt! I still have about 2 yards of tan Boy Scout print fabric left. I'd offer it to you to use for backing, but I think I'm probably too late.

  5. Thanks Jean and yes, it is too late. LOL I used the other panel as part of it. Congrats on having 2 Eagle Scouts!
