Happy Halloween Everyone!

This is a Scarecrow quilt that I made from a Red Wagon pattern using vintage feedsacks exclusively. Sorry for the cock-eyed photo. From where it is hanging it wasn't possible to take a full on pic. Here are a couple of the blocks:

The backing is all feedsack. I had a number of this pattern - maybe ten or more. It seemed to suit the quilt so quite a few of these were used here.
And, as always - Happy Birthday Dad! He is 84 today!

What a fun quilt!
It's not something I'd be likely to make, so I'm very glad you made it and that you have chosen to share it with all your readers!

I love your scarecrow quilt. It so fun and the colors are great.
My puppy did a lot barking and protecting me from the neighborhood scarecrow decorations this year, it was pretty funny - silly dog.
I love the red striped panted one especially!

I've seen this scarecrow pattern lots of times, but never one so charming! The feedsacks give it a quirky uniqueness. It's one of a kind.
