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.
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.
My name is Shannon. I'm a Twilight Quilter. My story isn't unique. Twilight fans around the globe have found ways to express their love for the books in many creative endeavors. I happen to love quilting so that is my chosen medium.
Once a member of the group that made the award winning Twilight Quilt for Stephenie Meyer, I am now on my own.
Join me as I am inspired to quilt Twilight.
I don't mind if you say I'm obsessed!

I am not affiliated with Stephenie Meyer, but I'd like to be.
I have no association with any other Twilight quilting or craft groups at this time, nor do I want to be.
No infringement of any kind is intended.
All of the blocks and quilts must be directly credited to the creative genius that is Stephenie Meyer. I cannot in good faith take sole credit for any of the blocks or quilts because they are directly inspired by her written word. It is only my good fortune that I have such amazing material from which to channel my creativity.
