About the Merit Badge

The Improv Quilt Badge encourages scouts to explore the creative and spontaneous side of quilting through improvisational techniques. This badge aims to foster creativity, innovation, and personal expression by allowing scouts to create unique, one-of-a-kind quilts without the use of predetermined patterns or layouts.

Requirements

  • Understand the basics of color theory and fabric selection to enhance the visual impact of an improv quilt.
  • Create a series of small fabric sketches or practice blocks to experiment with different improv techniques such as free cutting, piecing, and assembling without rulers.
  • Design and complete a full-sized improv quilt. The project should reflect a theme or personal expression and must incorporate a variety of fabrics and textures.
  • Document the creative process with photos or a journal, noting choices made, challenges encountered, and how they were resolved.
  • Reflect on the experience of making an improv quilt, discussing how it differs from traditional quilting and what skills it helped develop.
  • Bonus: Share photos of your improv quilt!
