What is She Up to Now??


This is my idea for the next quilt. Freddy Moran has some of these interesting people in Collaborative Quilting and I thought I'd give them a try. If I can get them looking the way I want I might build a house for each couple. So far I think I like the middle one the best. The lady in green is a bit too chesty. Lol. I should have cut the triangle a bit smaller at the top. I do like her big clunky clogs though. The man's legs are different sizes and there is a bit of a problem with his head. Maybe it's too big and off to one side a bit.
They are really fun to make although the feet are a bit challenging. Nothing comes close to the Rooster's feet though, so I'm not complaining.

Aw, c'mon. You can call the lady in green Jane Russell. I love her clogs!

Maybe if you'd given the 'hefty' one vertical stripes she'd appear slimmer... lol (Speaking as a plump woman who'd never be caught dead in a big floral print dress.)

I like the lady in green - she reminds me of a big Jamaican lady with her big flowered dress. You could make a people of the world quilt.

I do like your lady in the center -- but have to admit the lady in green has much better taste in shoes. I'd leave her -- after all, there are all types of bodies out there in the world!

Groovy people - I'm with Atet - and anyway, none of us are symmetrical.

Great folks to put together on a quilt.. I love them all and would happily embrace all the body shapes. They are wonderful, can't wait to see more.

I like them all - they look like just the kind of folk I would enjoy having in my neighborhood *s*

Love the chicken quilt - it has turned out just wonderful.

I really like all of them! People come in all shapes and sizes!! Can't wait to see what you do with them. I have that Collaborative Quilting book too and love it.

Another great fun idea! I love the chesty one! She could be a granma!
This will be another fun project to follow.

the three blocks look great. I'm always amazed at the different quilts you make. Are you following a pattern for the blocks?

I like the man - looks like he is putting his foot in to do the hookey pokey!

Cheers!

I like them all, too ! Especially the lady in green (she looks like me ! LOL).
Is it a published pattern ?
... OMG !, How come, that each time I visit one blog, I'm ready to abandon my current project(s), and start a new one ? (LOL)

Hugs & smiles !
