I’ve been catching up on a little “house” work lately. Probably not the kind I should be catching up on…but these “Full House” little houses have been so much fun to make!
I have all 18 houses finished and now just need to make my patchwork borders.
And I’m still a Farmer’s Wife, although I have no idea what week this is! I just finished up block #111, Wrench and block # 103, Whirlwind. I’ve got 50 blocks now in my Fig Tree version.
Love this block…
And this one, too!
And here are the same blocks in my Flurry Christmas version. I only have 44 blocks for this quilt as of now. I realized, though, that if I make just 6 more Christmas blocks, I’ll have enough to put them together into a lap-sized quilt that might just even get quilted this year!
I think I’ll work on finishing the Christmas version before I make any more Fig Tree blocks.
Although, I’m tempted to keep making these Christmas blocks…it’s fun to have a bright colorway to work on!
My Gumdrops quilt just arrived home this week too…I couldn’t wait to take a close up photo of the scrappy binding!
I really do love these colors!
Loving the little houses! I love both versions of your FMQAL blocks. The Flurry version will be adorable for the holidays 🙂

That's the best kind of housework I can think of…your FW blocks are so wonderful…need to get back to those…thank you for the inspiration. Glad your quilt is back home with you!

I love the scrappy border AND the rest of the Gumdrops!
Ithink I might enjoy housework like that. 😉 Darling!
Hey, hey! Now *that's* some housework I could LOVE! ;D
Remind me the name of the pattern for the houses? Your fabrics are perfect for the quilt.
And I can never remember the week we are supposed to be on for FW either. I just keep making blocks and hope I'm caught up!

Love the houses!
And the Pezzy…I want it but don't know what I would do with it. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
I'm really enjoying your Farmer's Wife journey. The blocks are delightfully sweet.
I've been making lots and lots of little houses, too. They are very, very addicting. LOL

I love your kind of housework! So much fun! Thanks for the smile this morning!!
That Gumdrop quilt and its binding are YUMMY! Love all the colors!
Which fabric are you using for the houses?? It is going to be hard to resist those pezzy prints – maybe I should hold on to them for you while you do your Christmas sewing. 😉

Love your photo's! It looks like the best kind of 'housework' to me too! 🙂 Have a happy day!
Love everything but especially the quilt. How big are the little squares please? Sorry to ask you yet another question.
Love the Houses…love the Farmers Wives…love Gumdrop & adore that Pezzy Print! Lots of stuff to covet!

a little bit biased says
i love houses!!! so cute! what pattern? love your new header by the way! have a good one sherri!
My 2 BFF's and I got together on Saturday to do some quilting on the one gal's frame so I brought them each the new Sew Scrappy magazine. I had sticky noted mine with this really cute "Gumdrop" quilt to show them. This morning I ran the magazine thru my printer so I can put the picture of the quilt on my bulletin board with my list of 2012 projects. The actual pattern is already in a plastic sleeve with some 2.5 inch scraps.
Well, imagine my surprise when I really LOOKED at the article and the light went on that it was your quilt! The quilt is gorgeous and I'm noticing soooo many scraps in your quilt that i have in my stash!
I can't wait to make it.
Congrats on being published and thank you so much for a wonderful quilt!!!
