    This is what I did with some orphan blocks:

    It says "friendship is sewn with love and measured with kindness". My sister came up with the saying, I did the framed blocks, and a neighbor did the printing. I'm embarrassed to say how long these have been up.

    That is a really neat idea and is great for over the cupboards! What a cozy look.

    What an innovative idea!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Neat. Did you create one big banner or are each of these elements (block, letters, flourishes) individually adhered to your wall in some way? Looks very nice either way and big kudos for such an original creative idea.
