Twilight Saga Charity Quilt: Graduation

Edward kissed me quickly, sighed, and went to go stand with the C's. . .

I walked down the line to take my place behind Jessica, mildly curious as to why she was suddenly so friendly. . .

Jess was babbling before I was in earshot.

". . . so amazing. I mean, it seems like we just met, and now we're graduating together," she gushed. "Can you believe it's over? I feel like screaming!" . . .

She droned on and on, and I was sure the sudden return of our friendship was due to graduation nostalgia. . . I paid attention as well as I could while I shrugged into my robe. And I found that I was glad that things could end on a good note with Jessica.

Because it was an ending, no matter what Eric, the valedictorian, had to say about commencement meaning "beginning. . ."
It went so quickly. . .

I watched as Alice, suddenly appearing, danced across the stage. . . Edward followed behind. . . Only the two of them could carry off the hideous yellow and still look the way they did. . .

Mr. Greene said something I didn't hear, and everyone around me shouted and screamed. Yellow hats rained down.

Graduation from Forks High
Pattern by Linda Causee and pieced by Angie as part of our Give-to-Win Twilight Saga Charity Quilt.

From Angie:
I used the pattern from my favorite 'paper piecing bible' 365 Foundation Quilt Blocks. Since I make most of my pictorial quilt blocks out of batik . . . these seemed like natural colors for a diploma. I had this grand idea of adding a gold thread tassel but the reality of that plan was disappointing so I nixed it. The words 'Forks High' are quilted in the background.

For every $5 donation to George Mark Children's House, you get one chance to win this quilt. Visit the Twilight Saga Quilt Page for more details.

We don't have the formal graduation ceremonies here for highs school, so i'm fascinated by them each time i see anything related to them in popular culture
