Wow, almost halfway on these blocks and they're still fun. I've found that almost all the blocks are also in 1001 Patchwork Designs by Maggie Malone... I have had this book for several years (originally found it at Goodwill!) and it's great because it shows the underlying grid for the blocks so you can draft them yourself, in any size. I like the Farmer's Wife Quilt book for inspiration and the stories, but since I really don't like to use templates unless absolutely necessary, I appreciate the help with block analysis. And if there's a Farmer's Wife block I absolutely hate, there are almost 900 others to choose from in this book.
I'm giving serious thought to joining another quilt-along -- the Crumb-along with me over at Jo's Country Junction. It's just something I have to consider, with this pile of tiny scraps I've been saving:
I'll be linking up over at Freshly Pieced, so be sure to check out all the other great things going on in the quilting world.
