About the Merit Badge

The Big Stitch Quilt Binding Badge introduces scouts to the technique of hand-sewing quilt bindings using larger, decorative stitches. This badge emphasizes the skills of hand stitching and attention to detail, and it encourages scouts to add a personal, artistic touch to finishing their quilting projects.


  • Learn about the tools and materials needed for big stitch binding, including the types of thread and needles.
  • Understand the differences between standard quilt binding and big stitch binding, including aesthetic and functional aspects.
  • Practice making big stitches on a fabric sample to gain consistency in stitch length and spacing.
  • Complete a quilt (or a smaller project like a table runner or placemat) and finish it using the big stitch binding technique.
