Twilight Saga Charity Quilt: Arm Wrestling

"You. Me. Arm-wrestling. ... Now."

"No problem," Emmett said with a gleaming smile. "Right this way, Bella."

–Bella Cullen, Breaking Dawn, page 518-519

Arm Wrestling
Designed and pieced by Joyce as part of our Give-to-Win Twilight Saga Charity Quilt.

From Joyce:
This is one of my favorite scenes in the book. Emmett is so much fun, and it’s great to see Bella ‘best’ him. I used the photo still that was released before the movie to get a sense of how this scene would look, reread that section of Breaking Dawn, then sketched my version of it. I used the tree fabric for the background so it would look like the forest around the Cullen’s house. The rock is the same dark gray as the lower cliff on the cliff diving block. I used black with curlicues for Emmett’s hair and a very pale fabric for Emmett’s skin. Bella’s skin is the same fabric in an even lighter shade. I used denim for her shirt and brown for her hair. I didn't think Emmett needed a shirt. I satin-stitched around Emmett and Bella to give more definition, then used a wavy embroidery stitch for Bella’s hair.
