Cub Scout Quilt progress

Here is the center of the Cub Scout quilt I'm working on for Parker. The pattern is the Disappearing Nine Patch pattern. I am using the yellow and blue Scout fabric to make a pieced border. A photo of my progress on that is below.

This is just a sample of how the border will look. I've got more half-square triangles sewn than this photo shows, but not all of them yet. I plan to put a narrow strip of green between the center and this border then use the same green for binding. It is not the same green as either of the two greens that are in the center. I do not have enough of either of these fabrics to do a border or binding. I decided not to buy more of the green Scout fabric and the other green is an older print that I couldn't find in the 30 minutes I looked for it online. My LQS had a very nice green that goes well with the other fabrics and will be just fine.

That's turning out really cute, Lynn. I love your border idea. The zigzag will compliment the middle nicely, and I think your ideas for green borders and bindings will really add to it nicely. Can't wait to see it come together!
