Draw an "X" on back of lighter fabric, with diagonal lines going from corner to corner. Stitch 1/4 inch to right of each line from outside edge to intersecting drawn line. Cut on "X." Each square will make 4 half-triangle sets. Press seams to 1 side.

  6. For checkerboard, stitch 1 medium to dark strip to each scarecrow background strip lengthwise. Cut strips into 11/2-inch sections. Assemble 4 checkerboard strips, each 11 squares long. Mix fabrics to create patchwork look, and make sure each strip begins and ends with dark squares on top, light squares on bottom. Make 4 checkerboard strips 6 squares long. Two should start with dark and end with light squares on top and start with light and end with dark squares on bottom. Two should start with light and end with dark squares on top and start with dark and end with light squares on bottom.

  7. Stitch long checkerboard strips to ends of each 41/2 X 21/2-inch corner square rectangle. Stitch short checkerboard strips to opposite sides of two 21/2-inch corner squares. Add one 21/2-inch square to each end of top and bottom checkerboard strips. See step 8 diagram for correct orientation of light and dark checkerboard squares.

  9. Download and cut out all patterns. Iron fusible webbing to wrong side of fabrics for all appliqués. Trace patterns on paper side of fusible webbing, cut out, and remove paper backing. From fence fabric, cut one 3/4 X 43/4-inch strip for bottom rail, three 3/4 X 23/8-inch strips for center fence slats, and two 3/4 X 1/2-inch pieces for upper fence rails. Remove paper backing. Position all shapes on quilt as shown in finished quilt illustration below. Cut several short lengths of raffia and position at scarecrow's wrists, ankles, neck, and head, just under edge of coverall appliqué. Fuse all appliqués, including raffia in bond around outer edges of coveralls and hat. Use black marker to draw facial features on scarecrow, pumpkin vines, leaf veins, and lines on pumpkins. Draw small, simulated stitches around pumpkins, pumpkin leaves, and scarecrow face. Rub tip of cotton swab against blush until some blush clings to swab. Place tip of swab on left side of scarecrow face and twist against fabric to make cheek. Repeat for right cheek. If you plan to wash the quilt, you might prefer to use red paint for cheeks.
