Fandom In Stitches - A Call for Designers

Fandom In Stitches is a multi-fandom website that offers free quilt patterns for fans, by fans, including a large collection of Twilight patterns, thanks mostly to our very own hardhatcat's Block of the Month that was held here on twilight_crafts in 2010.

We are looking for designers to help with our Request List and to diversify the fandoms we represent.

If you'd like to be part of the awesome fandomy goodness, you can read about being an FiS Designer right here.

All quilt techniques are welcome; appliqué, traditional, embroidery, etc.

We hope to hear from you!

Breaking Dawn Quilt

I'm currently working with a group of others on a quilt for Breaking Dawn.  The block i've worked on are for Esme Isle and the "why am I covered in feathers?" scene


This is Esme Isle.  The house is described as white with large windows looking onto the beach.  I was going to originally going to piece the dolphin in the water as well, but was running out of time and as i already had this dolphin fabric in my stash, i decided to use that instead.  Note that this image is an uncropped picture so once stitched into the final quilt the seam allowance is taken into account the sun will have more of a rounded image rather than the teadrop shown here.


This is my covered in feathers block.  It was hard to find a background colour that would suit and still showcase the feathers well.  I also used different cream tones for the feathers so that each was distinct in itself and to give a bit of feeling of depth to the image.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the blocks the others in my group have finished and once the overall quilt is completed!

Crafty Sales Posts

twilight_crafts recently changed our community guidelines and the way we deal with sales posts. Instead of one post where you can share your for sale items in comments, we're going to give individual sales posts a try. We would love your feedback on this.

Sellers, here are your guidelines:

Items must be Twilight-related, hand-crafted items

All sales posts behind an lj- cut, they will not be approved without a cut.

Posts need to include the tag "for sale"

All items posted must be PG-13 or less in order to be approved.

Please include all appropriate contact information, links, etc.

Individual sellers may only make sales posts once a month.

When posting items for sale, the moderators at twilight_crafts encourage you to keep in mind this is a craft community and not a sales community. Posting your crafty goodness encourages others to create so please be aware that by sharing photos of your for sale work, you are acknowledging that you are also sharing your ideas and others may be inspired to recreate your work.
