Breaking Dawn Charity Quilt: Jacob and Rosalie's Rivalry

“It had once probably been a big mixing bowl, but she’d bent the bowl back in on itself until it was shaped almost exactly like a dog dish. I had to be impressed with her quick craftsmanship. And her attention to detail. She’d scratched the word Fido into the side. Excellent handwriting.”
–Jacob Black, Breaking Dawn, page 294

Design and piecing by Kate

The challenging part to this block was picking the fabrics to represent Jacob and Rosalie. For Jacob, I used warm earthy tones. For Rosalie, I knew I wanted to use sparkly white to represent her as a vampire, but it wasn’t until I saw someone dressed as “human Rose” at the Boston Twilight Convention did inspiration strike. Feminine retro-fabrics to reinforce her story.

If a dog dish is delightful then this is definitely that! As I think of that part of the story the dog dish here makes it so fun.
