Twilight Hands: On-Point
The pattern works!
I didn't have to sew anything twice.
I had to square up the block because of a bit of shrinkage, but this is typical for a block with so many sections and so many little pieces. (The pictured block is before I squared it up.) I purposely made the block larger because knew I would square it up.
The grey I used is too dark. Darn it!
I'm still going to use the block to test the pattern for the Reproduction quilt.
I'm overly critical of my own work
The block isn't that bad and someone won't notice the dark grey so much....
The pattern is difficult at 9" with too much detail. I hate to give it up, though. I like that the hand doesn't look like a blob holding an apple.
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.
