Your troop can earn

Girl Scout USA approved quilting badges!

          Quilt-It!  projects provide fun and creative ways for Brownies, Juniors, and Cadette/Seniors to learn basic quilting skills.  The Try-It, Badge, and Interest Project were developed by members of the Tucson Quilters Guild Education Committee.

          Quilt-It!  projects have been successfully used by Brownie, Junior, and Cadette/Senior troops in the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona.   The Council has also processed badge orders for over 1,537 girls from 30 states!  Attractive quilts are produced, with both the scouts and their leaders enjoying the work.  Brownies make basic four-patch pot holders, Juniors create simple placemats, Cadette/Seniors create more elaborate quilts of their own design.  Elementary skills are taught, so that all work can be completed by hand sewing and quilting.  Sewing machines are an option for more advanced girls.


          This web site provides all of the information, directions, and leader support that are needed for a troop to undertake and successfully complete a Quilt-It!  project.   The projects can be carried out during consecutive troop meetings, or in a longer workshop setting.  They are also ideally suited for day camp programs.
