Stephenie Meyer Quilt: The “Other” Jacob

“Do you think you could behave yourself a little better, at least?” I asked, irritated.

“No, I don't. You decide, Bella. You can have me the way I am — bad behavior included — or not at all.”

I stared at him, frustrated. “That's mean.”

“So are you.”

–Bella Swan and Jacob Black, Eclipse, page 329

Welcome to paper piecing! This was the first paper piecing pattern I tried. It was designed by Jennifer Ofenstein and can be found at Fandom In Stitches. I don't remember how many 'practice pieces' I did, but there were quite a few. (Many only made it a few steps before going in the scrap pile!) The other quilters were a huge help as I learned. I was so excited to see the picture taking shape as I pieced. It was like putting together a puzzle! I loved the starry blue fabric and had to use it. For the wolf, I looked through and tried various fabrics to get what I pictured as 'Jacob russet.' This is one of my favorite patterns.
