New Moon Quilt: The Meteor

The Meteor by Angie

Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars—points of light and reason… And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.
Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 23, p.514

This is one of my favorite quotes in the book. It is so passionate and romantic and so 'Edward', just the right thing to say and just the right time.

I used yellow fairy frost (the same that is in the phone) and this wonderful orange fabric that I don't really remember where it came from. The pattern is one of Cat's - she rocks!

This was the first time I even tried to paper piece anything and I thought with all the long lines it was good to get my feet wet with. Once it was put together, I loved the fabric colors even more.

Angie, the fabrics are spectacular and just pop right off the block. You did a great job with the paper piecing!
