Twilight Saga Charity Quilt: Vegetarian Vampire Eyes

I watched as his golden eyes grew perceptibly darker day by day. –Bella Swan, Twilight, page 70

Vegetarian Vampire Eyes
Pattern designed by Cat & pieced by Nicole as part of our Give-to-Win Twilight Saga Charity Quilt.

From Nicole:
I love the vampire eyes, and Cat had created a paper piecing pattern for it, which I LOVE. So, I went with the “veggie” vamp eyes. It has a nice topaz-y color, and I used both the white glittery fabric for around the eye and the gold glittery fabric for the flesh of the vampire.

From Cat:
This pattern was done with the “vegetarian” vampire in mind and their topaz coloured eyes, but it works equally well in red. The pattern is a lot easier than it looks as it done without the need to join multiple pieces of paper, but it is still quite striking as the eye looks out at you.

Nicole, you did a wonderful job on this block. I love the pretty golden/topaz color you used for the eye and the sparkly skin is the perfect touch.
