Eclipse Quilt: Birds and the Bees

Eclipse Quilt:  Birds and the Bees


... His thoughts are relatively calm, Edward teased.  His expression made me wonder if there was some additional joke I was missing.  The corners of his mouth twitched, fighting a smile. ...

Loveable Charlie having the sex talk with Bella...  This would be like my dad having The Birds and the Bees Talk with me at that age.  We'd both cringing, too.

I used another Mckenna Ryan/Pineneedles pattern, but from the All Cooped Up series this time.  The bird pattern was made by copying some flannel fabric that I found at Hobby Lobby, tracing the shape onto Steam a Seam Lite, fusing to my fabrics, etc.  I decided to use charms for the bees to be a little different.
