The story never ends when the quilting magic begins

How Far I've Come and NOT.....
An interesting post at Twi-Quilters today..... Very oddly timed to be sure.... I would have left a comment, but they've been turned off.
I admit to visiting on my own, but someone was nice enough to tell me about the post. Strange.
WOW! I find it hard to believe that I made this block a little under three years ago. I really struggled making this block. (The pattern didn't help matters....) I really should have tried one more time to get it right so the two matching points on the lower right finger and the upper left wrist are matched.
I think I'm a better piecer today having learned so much about good patterns being the foundation for good piecing, paper piecing tips and tricks, and more about myself as a quilter. It's not okay to leave things if they can be fixed. I should have made sure this block was pieced better.
The good thing, though, about the whole experience is that I worked and worked until I made a better pattern. I've learned so much. The only thing that I could ask for at this point is more time to do more designing. Every other shipped has sailed.....
Twilight Hands/Forbidden Fruit/Twilight Book Cover pattern and it's variations available at Twilight Quilt Patterns. Version 2 is the pattern closed to the Cat Magraith pattern that was used for the Stephenie Meyer Twilight Quilt.
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!
For more of my personal story, please visit my page.
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.
