Time for ... another bee block :)

May came so faast - suddenly I realized that it is y month again in my bits and pieces bee. Everybody has got 2 month, and each member sews 2 blocks for each month.
So - my decision:

I would love to make a "words quilt" - a quilt made of blocks with words - liberated pieced. A little wonky, straight, small letters, big letters, ... FREE PIECING! No special size, just the background must be grey (dark or light doesn´t matter).
 This is my "trial" block - my first free pieced word! That´s fun... more to come!

I have used the following tutorials and photopools:

I have made the "o" and "a" with her tute!

and if you search in flickr for "word quilts" you can see maaaany wonderful quilts with words!
for example here are some nice letter blocks:    
and of course:
She is THE letter maker and she has written a great book about it.

I have used this tute as a help with piecing:
I had much fun with making my name - I hope you too!

Heute habe ich mein erstes "freigearbeitetes" Wort genäht - meinen Namen nämlich! Oben sind sämtliche Links, die ich benutzt habe! Daraus und noch vielen Wörtern mehr wird dann ein Quilt! Meine Mitglieder in der bits and pieces Gruppe in Flickr helfen mir dabei - yuhuu!
