Twilight Saga Charity Quilt: The Meadow

I reached the edge of the pool of light and stepped through the last fringe of ferns into the loveliest place I had ever seen. The meadow was small, perfectly round, and filled with wildflowers — violet, yellow and soft white. Somewhere nearby, I could hear the bubbling music of a stream. The sun was directly overhead, filling the circle with a haze of buttery sunshine. I walked slowly, awestruck, through the soft grass, swaying flowers, and warm, gilded air. –Bella Swan, Twilight, page 259

The Meadow
Pattern designed by Cat and pieced by Jerri Lynn as part of our Give-to-Win Twilight Saga Charity Quilt.

From Jerri Lynn:
I was so happy to do this block, as it is one of my favorite scenes from all of the books combined! The beautiful design is Cat's, but I chose my own fabrics. I love the way that Cat has designed this scene, with Edward and Bella gazing at one another. This is the perfect image for the last movie, as it brings the focus of the books, the love between Edward and Bella, right to the surface.

From Cat:
I found that this scene in the book and also the movie to be quite calming. I have the characters off centre in the corner of the block to emphasize the vast openness of the meadow and to demonstrate the feeling that they could be alone with just the two of them there as if the rest of the world doesn't matter. That is the feeling I had when I read this scene in the book and I tried to capture that in the block pattern too.

This pattern blows my mind. Cat I love how you didn't center them in the scene, their periphery placement gives it movement. And one of my favorite scenes in the book!

Jerri Lynn, really couldn't have picked better fabrics! and the seed bead detail is a nice finishing touch!
