Girl Scouts

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
