Scout Quilt Top and Back


I got 'er done, today.  I'm very pleased with both the quilt top and back.  The quilt top measures 55x60 inches.  I used 18 different fabrics rather than the 16 called for in the pattern.  My quilt turned out smaller instead of larger, because I decided on a sixth feather, and then added the left-over pieces to make it really long, for the back.  Putting it on the diagonal, challenged my brain, but I'm a math nerd at heart.


Pattern review:

Scout by Cluck Cluck Sew.

As I said, I normally don't buy patterns, I really like to figure things out for myself.  I'm glad I got this one, and only have one critique.  When joining the blocks together to make each side of the feathers, the pattern calls for the sections to be offset 3/8 of an inch.  That didn't work for me; I adjusted to 5/8" for the off-set/over-lap, and it was perfect.  If you use this pattern, be prepared to adjust!
May your bobbins always be full,
