Little People


Here are some more little people. I made some red ones for Clare's Quilts for Leukemia. I will probably make a few more before sending them off. I thought I'd try something different with the Wizard. Does it remind you of Harry Potter? Does it need feet? It's too bad the boys don't have longer pants. Lol.
These little guys are fun to make but I'm not sure what to do with them. The bigger ones are about 8.5 inches square. (The red ones are exact). They seem to be getting bigger for some reason. I was going to make houses for them but I am afraid I'll end up with a huge quilt. I am aiming more at a wall hanging. Freddy has a few rows of them with trees between on the ones she shows in the book.
I guess I'll make a few more and see what happens.
Maybe somebody has an idea for some words to go with them. Ideas are welcome.

I love them. I just finished a Dalmatian wall hanging. Had to use a pattern though. :}

Cute little people. Naw, I don't think wizards need feet! I've never seen a wizard walk anywhere! lol Have fun!

No, doesn't need feet if he can fly! Love these little people more all the time. Just had to visit your post to show my 6 yo your fox and he wants a copy to go on his wall. High praise indeed!~ Is that ok? Tracey

Dare you to get that one out of your head soon. (sorry, you asked for ideas for words, these are what came to mind)

Despite the annoying theme park song reference, I am loving your little people.

These little people are so cute! I love their shoes and hats, they have so much character!

Clare said...

I love the wizard and no he should not have feet. I assume he is Dumbledore and not Lord Voldemort!

Brain dead today so can't help on the words - sorry.

Splendid quilty things. You're so clever. And you can do it with that chocolate in one hand and wine in the other? Truly a multi-tasker.

Oh Joyce - you've got this liberated piecing bug good and proper - it's such fun seeing what you have a go next - keep 'em coming girl :o)

They are lovely Joyce and do indeed remind me of Harry Potter's story. It's also for a very good cause.

Definitely 'it's a small world after all' and no feet on the wizard!
