Blessings of Summer - Block 4

The two little mini quilts are done!  Phew!!  Each one took a little longer than I had thought they might.  Very tiny....but very cute, too!  Check 'em out...hanging out on their clothesline with their little teeny clothespins, while a pretty little kite catches a summer breeze. :)

This is a huge block, more than half the width of the center portion of the quilt.  Sorry for the weirdness of the shape of the block.  I had loosely placed it on top of another quilt on my quilt rack...it looks a bit wavy, but is really flat.
The next block is almost done, as well.   All done with the exception of the wording on the heart.  It has a huge heart with the words "In God We Trust" across a ribbon. I am not really happy with how the words look hand stitched on the ribbon.  Plus,  I am conflicted about using those words, only because they seem out of place in a "summer" themed quilt.  I was looking for either an alternative wording or was going to use a bow for the center of the ribbon instead.  Any suggestions?

Very cute tiny quilts, Michele!

How about Home Sweet Home for the words?

Your block is just adorable, but I can see how it would take so much time. Did you actually have to piece those little quilts? Wow! That is a lot of work, but it's just wonderful!
