Farming with Quilt Blocks

I have more Farmers Wife Blocks to share today! It seems like the hardest part about working on this quilt is figuring out which block to sew next--I love them all!

First up (and this is one of my favorites) is Block #39, Friendship. This block seemed destined to be made in my California Girl scraps.

And here is block #29, Economy!  I used Strawberry Fields for this one.

And Block #35, Flower Basket (fabric is California Girl).

Here is Friendship in Flurry.

 Flower Basket in Flurry,

 And Economy in Flurry. Three more Flurry blocks and I can make the lap quilt...but I'm wavering now...if I just make 36 more blocks I can have a twin-sized quilt.  Decisions, decisions.  I just might not be ready to stop making the Christmas blocks; it's so fun to sew these blocks using the bright colors.  I guess I'll have to decide pretty soon--we'll see.

Do you ever just love the back of a block?  For some reason I thought the back of the Friendship blocks was picture worthy--

Today is the first day of a four-day weekend for me.  First up is to straighten up the sewing room, and then I'm starting on some Christmas gifts!  What are you working on today? Does anyone have some great ideas for handmade gifts?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
