I got my 47yr old mom hooked on Twilight back during the fall and she now has a thing for Edward so I decided to make an Edward throw for her. It is going to be her Christmas present and I really hope she likes it. I know it isn't perfect but I tried.
I have always admired the time and effort that you quilters put into the quilts but now I have even more after making my first.
I didn't realize how hard making it was going to be. It is 39"x39", I thought I bought enough fabric to make a larger one but I didn't. Then I had to decide on a pattern to make the fabric that I had work. That was so nerve racking for me and I almost gave up before I could even get started. But I got it figured out. I used some quilts I saw on etsy and google search for inspiration. I wanted a different style but I had to go with what would work.
For some odd reason I ironed on the picture of Edward onto a separate piece than the black around him and then "log cabined" around him instead of ironing it directly to a large black square.
The quotes were ironed directly on the fabric and then zigzagged around, which was a lot easier.
They are "And so the lion fell in love with the lamb"; "Be Safe"; "You are my life now", and "You are exactly my brand of heroin". After I finished them I wanted to add more but I didn't have enough iron on transfers to do it.
I think I need to iron the edges of the quilt a little to get them to lay flat a little more but overall I am pleased with it.
