Best Friends

After I sent Julie a photo of the bird I made of Megan, she texted back, "... what does a quiltdiva julie bird look like?"

 "Purple," I texted back.
A few minutes later I sent her this photo. "Your wing cometh from here. LOL"
  
"Do I get purple legs? And do I get a turquoise beak?

My reply: "You don't get to choose." After selecting some fabrics, I wrote back, "Yours will have green in it because your bird wants it."

Julie: "I love green."

Here's Julie's bird. The beak is red-violet and the legs are purple. The beak is really long and ends in a point, but  I chopped it off when I took a photo.  Oops.

"Are you gonna make one for Chris?" 




"This is Chris. Easier than you."

So this is Chris.

Julie wrote back, "LOVE THE LEGS!!"

Yeah. Me too!

There are now about 23 birds. I'm nowhere near done making them, and I'm still having a ball.

I adore my bird . . . my wing is awesome, I have PURPLE legs, I'm wearing vertical (instead of horizontal) stripes, and my glasses in real life are not so different in color from my beautiful beak! In a rush to get out the door so I am not thinking creatively enough to write a funny comment about myself . . . but I am honored to be among those in your flock!

I hope you have opened a new door for the quilters who have to know what the quilt will look like before they can start on it (formula quilt, this fabric goes here, etc.). This is a true scrap/multifabric quilt where the joy is in choosing fabrics and creating each block. Playing with the layout of the quilt becomes a fun time handling each of the mini masterpieces one more time. The surprise of how it turns out is so much more exciting than knowing what it will look like before you start.

Thank you Wanda. It's always an honor to receive compliments from you.

Belinda said...

Oh Lynne, what FUN CRAZINESS you are creating…….and no, I don't think those stripes make "Julie" bird
look fat……..(snort……lol…lol….)

Stop tempting me with these birds of yours!!!

NO…..MUST. NOT. START. SOMETHING. NEW.
MUST. BE. GOOD.

Millie said...

Looking at all the birds together, I got the idea of YOUR flock. But you need birds for Paul and Rubylocks, Plus one and his mom, and your mom.
