Crazy Quilt Trinket Block - Girl Scouts Of America

One of the happiest times of my childhood is when I was in Brownies and Girl Scouts.  I got to do so many fun things in Girl Scouts.  Crafts, baking, field trips.  So many nice things.  And of course, selling cookies!!!

My most recent crazy quilt trinket block represents those really fun years:

I still have my sash and my pins but I didn't want to take my sash apart.  I bought these little Brownie and Girl Scout pins on Ebay and I bought the patch on Ebay.

For all the years I was a Brownie/Girl Scout, I was the flag bearer for my troop.  I got to carry the American flag for all of my troops functions and all school assemblies.  I was so proud of that and it's I learned my respect for the American flag.

The flag pin in the top righ-hand corner is from the Bicentenial of the United States back in 1976.  I was in 8th grade then.  So that represents me being the flag bearer as well as the 200th birthday of the United States.

The little heart shaped watch is from my mom.  She used to have it hanging on her purse but she can't see it anymore so she gave it to me.  I represents the love I have for being a Girl Scout and the happy time that it was in my life.

Here's a photo of my sash:

Notice my first patch is for needlework!

This is such a cute idea! We had Girl Guides here in Canada, and I have fond memories too - and my sash stowed away in a box somewhere LOL We didn't have a needlework badge, unfortunately :)
