This adorable scarecrow caught my eye immediately when I opened the fall edition of Quilting Celebrations by Fons and Porter , I knew I would have to make it . Well I will warn anyone who wants to make this , the pattern is not correct in the magazine, I am not too happy right now, I cut and sewed my background fabrics and then cut and assembled the scarecrow only to find they do not fit , not even close. I thought first I could sort of overlap the lettering but then when I tried to place all the scarecrow pieces on the assembled background , they were also much too large . It surprised me a little as most times when I have made things from these publications they were just fine but I will also warn you about one in the newest publication the Christmas magazine , there is a mistake on the candle as well . I am thankful I found some blue in my fabric stash that was large enough to use in place of what I had previously sewn , it isn't what I wanted to use but I certainlyt did not want to go buy more fabric and I was able to peel off the lettering and reiron those on the new piece . I still love him even though at this point he was way more work than I bargained for . Now to do all that applique . That's it for me today I just thought I should share this info incase someone is reading this and was about to start this project , the background size should actually be 21.5"x 30.5" for the blue and the brown is 21.5"x5". Thanks for stopping by and have a great day .
