Twilight Saga Charity Quilt: Bella & Edward's Wedding

Edward held out his hand. Charlie, took my hand and, in a symbol as old as the world, placed it in Edward’s. I touched the cool miracle of his skin, and I was home. –Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, page 49

Bella and Edward's Wedding
Designed and pieced by Joyce as part of our Give-to-Win Twilight Saga Charity Quilt.

From Joyce:
This block required watching the movie numerous times, pausing, sketching, researching the details of the wedding dress, tuxedo, hair jewels, etc. I decided to create the moment when Bella gets to Edward. For the background, I used a light fabric with small green-leafed vines and a dark green for the ground. Edward’s tuxedo is satin in black and white. Bella’s dress resembles the design in the movie. The back is detailed like the wedding gown in the movie. I added seed pearls along the back which are under the ‘veil’. Her hairpiece is made of silver and blue beads.

Joyce, as always, your creativity amazes me. I love all the 3-D touches you add to our quilts. I love the recreation of Bella's dress and I think my favorite part is the silver and blue hairpiece. Great job!
