Gloria brought me the Girl Scout uniforms that her Mom and aunt wore in the 1940's. There wasn't a lot of fabric, so the quilt is a small wall hanging - 28 x 32. I quilted simple wiggly lines on the seams so as not to detract from the embroidery and embellishments.
She did the research and found the names of each badge so I could label them.
I made pinwheels from the 2 different fabrics and used that as a border.
The sleeve of the tweed fabric had the troop number, region name, and a trefoil
I kept all the buttons and pockets and was able to incorporate them
The tweed uniform had embroidery on the collar
There is even a Girl Scout fabric that I found for the backing and binding
