Design Wall Monday: Edward and Bella Wedding Quilt, Finished?


Hello!  A finished quilt top is on my design wall today....  at least, I think it's finished.  I'm trying to convince myself to leave well enough alone.  I hope I don't get too bored today and doodle any more in EQ or this quilt might end up with another border.

I ended up squaring up the quilt with an extra 1/4" all the way around...no points will be lost in the making of this quilt.

Particulars:

Remembering Isle Esme (Bella and Edward Wedding Quilt) as inspired by Breaking Dawn.***

10" paper pieced block as drafted for paper piecing by Shannon LaCount

Quilt designed in EQ7

Ribbon set-in border inspired by Sally Scheider.

Here's our room.  Esme tried to bring some of her island back here for us.  She guessed that we would get attached.

The bed was huge and white, with cloudes of gossamer floating down from the canopy to the floor.  The pale wood floor matched the other room, and now I grasped that it was precisely the color of a pristine beach.  The walls were that almost-white-blue of a brilliant sunny day, and the back wall had big glass doors that opened into a little hidden garden.  Climbing roses and a small round pond, smooth as a mirror and edged with tiny stones.  A tiny, calm ocean for us.

Oh, was all I could say.

I know, he whispered.

We stood there for a minute, remembering.  Though the memories were human and clouded, they took over my mind completely.

Breaking Dawn, pp 480-481
