Stephenie Meyer Quilt: Alice & Jasper

Of the three boys, one ... was taller, leaner, but still muscular, and honey blond. ... The short girl was pixielike, thin in the extreme, with small features. Her hair was a deep black, cropped short and pointing in every direction.
–Bella Swan, Twilight, page 18

“That's ... Jasper Hale. The one who left was Alice Cullen; they all live together with Dr. Cullen and his wife. They're all together though —Jasper and Alice, I mean. And they live together.” –Jessica Stanley, Twilight, page 20

“I was in Philadelphia. There was a storm, and I was out during the day — something I was not completely comfortable with yet. I knew standing in the rain would attract attention, so I ducked into a little half-empty diner. My eyes were dark enough that no one would notice them, though this meant I was thirsty, and that worried me a little.

“She was there — expecting me, naturally.” He chuckled once. “She hopped down from the high stool at the counter as soon as I walked in and came directly toward me. That's the only interpretation of her behavior my past had to offer. But she was smiling. And the emotions that were emanating from her were like nothing I'd ever felt before.

“‘You've kept me waiting a long time,’ she said.”

I didn't realize Alice had come to stand behind me again.

“And you ducked your head, like a good Southern gentleman, and said, ‘I'm sorry, ma'am.’” Alice laughed at the memory.

Jasper smiled down at her. “You held out your hand, and I took it without stopping to make sense of what I was doing. For the first time in almost a century, I felt hope.” –Jasper Hale, Alice Cullen and Bella Swan, Eclipse, page 301

Iris created the image in the crystal ball, layering different elements that represent Jasper in photo shop, including Jackson Rathbone's eyes. The image was transferred to printable fabric and placed in this block inside a crystal ball, which represents Alice's ability to see the future. The crystal ball pattern was designed by Jennifer Ofenstein and the block was pieced by former member, Shannon.
