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.
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.
