Twilight Saga Charity Quilt: Months Passing

It will be as if I'd never existed, he'd promised me.

I felt the smooth wooden floor beneath my knees, and then the palms of my hands, and then it was pressed against the skin of my cheek. I hoped that I was fainting, but to my disappointment, I didn't lose consciousness. The waves of pain that had only lapped at me before now reared high up and washed over my head, pulling me under.

I did not resurface.
–Bella Swan, New Moon, page 84

Months Passing Without Notice
Designed and pieced by Joyce as part of our Give-to-Win Twilight Saga Charity Quilt.

From Joyce:
The months passing was one of the most heart wrenching parts of the books for me. If you've read the New Moon write-ups, this will be a repeat. For this quilt, I tried to replicate what I had made for the New Moon quilt. The months fit together and flip up to reveal the next month. If you look closely, hopefully you will see the trees are designed to symbolize hands reaching toward each other, but just not able to connect. I used many of the same fabrics for these blocks as for the New Moon quilt. The trees are various fabrics, which resemble bark. The skies are tie-dyed blue. The ground varies with each month as the seasons changed. To finish the blocks, I embroidered the name of each month on the block.

Joyce, I love this little 3-D flip up block. It was an amazing bit of genius the first time and I love it again for this quilt. Your fabric choices are so perfect and I love the cross-stitch letters in the months.

Joyce, lovely way to capture that heart wrenching moment. I admit, I did not realize the trees symbolized hands reaching towards each other, not quite touching. Makes this "block" all the more special.
