On my design floor...

The last of the words from my Spelling Bee buddies 

arrived this week.

So I was able to get these out on my design floor 

today!


I am going to put some 'picture' blocks in amongst 

the words...



My mind wasn't quite focused on things while I was 

making this one!


Ah, that's better!

This one features some of my favourite places....



and this is where I got to....


with plans to paper piece a suitcase block 

(places we've been)

applique a bike block

(memories made).....


and maybe one or two other blocks?

I'd love to hear if you have any suggestions?

Happy sewing!

  11. These words all look terrific, knowing how long you waited for the "lost" word, you got right to the assembling (another thing I like about you!). I'm a bit stalled, but hope to get going as soon I as I get Mary's word out the door. Hard to believe we only have three more months of word-making!

  12. These all look great, and it is all so true. Perhaps a paper pieced koala to represent home.

  13. Wow, this is going to be wonderful. Love seeing all the words together. I like your idea of adding in the special blocks that mean something to you.

  14. This is wonderful Suz. Glad you got all the words in the end. How about a little paper pieced aeroplane? Or you could always add in some embroidery - a London bus?

  15. This is such a neat saying, and the addition of themed blocks makes it memorable too. The word "way" got me to thinking about signage - curve, straight ahead (arrow), and those signs that point a direction and give distances to major cities, like "10,000 miles to NYC." You're going to end up with a very special quilt. Keep up the great work!

  18. Sorry, got delayed by the semi naked man in the "removed" blog comment above this one. And then I really thought I had already commented... although that might have just been in my head. You can't go past a friendship star.

  20. I am late with suggestions, but what about pets? Without changing the wording, can they be part of a picture associated with memories?
