How fun and easy is that?! 

Scarecrow Surprise! In Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, vol. 6

I have a new friend to introduce to you today called Scarecrow Surprise!

This guy came about because I wanted something that said “autumn,” but was also playful and included a tiny bit of hand embroidery.

Scarecrow Surprise! In Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, vol. 6

You can find Scarecrow Surprise on page 30 of 100 Blocks Vol. 6. And look there to the right…I’m super excited to have Scarecrow Surprise right next to a wonderful pattern by Charise from Charise Creates! How awesome is that?

Here’s something else fun… Scarecrow Surprise is on the cover, too!

He joins May Showers as 100 Blocks cover alumni!

Scarecrow Surprise!

What? You’re supposed to be scared of me!

I started with just a scarecrow, but after a couple of doodles, I quickly realized that he was a lonely old guy standing there all alone. I started thinking about what a scarecrow is actually supposed to do and I wondered how often a birds ignore the You Shall Not Land directive.

A lot, I bet!


Scarecrow Surprise! Penciled in face.

When I drafted this guy out, he had a plain face. After adding the bird to his shoulder, I realized what was missing…his reaction! Here it is penciled in on my first draft.

Scarecrow Surprise! Design in Progress

Here’s a little sneak peak of how the pre-published version of the pattern looked. Look, ma, no numbers!
