Bright Union Jack and another Farmer's Wife Block

Yesterday I was working and one of my UFO baskets fell over when Lola ran by it. She knocked over the boxes and these blocks fell out.These blocks are ones I started last summer. They are big blocks and I can't decide whether to finish them as a wallhanging or baby quilt or whether to stick them on the UFO pile (huge, giant pile) and make a bigger quilt.
 And I did get another Farmer's Wife block stitched up. It's called Railroad and I know this photo isn't very good but I just don't want to take another one, load it onto the computer and adjust it. Hopefully, you get the idea. Using Karen's easy methods, these blocks are so fast that it takes me longer to pick out the fabrics than to stitch them up. Her Craftsy class is HERE.
It would be fun to make a big quilt out of this pattern. Well, I have to go try to make some money at my "real job"...bleah.... Today I'm writing about the Landlord Tenant Act. Woo. I know, I'm grateful to have a job....sigh....just wish I knew something about Landlord Tenant Law. Hope you are all having a great day! XO and cheery wave from Bev

Your Union Jack blocks are beautiful, I'd love to see you use them in a bigger quilt.

just popped over to Amazon to check out the farmers wife book but think I must not buy, have enough on the go! but will enjoy following your journey. Re the flags think it would look good to see more in lots of different colours.
