After seeing beautiful bento box quilts around the blog world I decided I'd try and figure out how to make one myself. I worked out the dimensions on paper...yadda, yadda, yadda.
And finally...a look at my jumbo pile of "trimmings" from my miscalculations! Oh, what could've been...
For more beautiful bento box quilts check out these talented women:
Kathy at Pink Chalk Studio: This one inspired my wild fabric choice! If Kathy can use tons of bright, colorful fabrics, then so can I! Her fabric choices give this design so much life! Hers is such a cheery quilt, don't you think? (Kathy sells the Bento Box Pattern in her shop!--This would be the pattern I should've bought to save my sanity!)Flickr!
The main fabrics I used came from the Flirtations line by Sandy Gervais. Squares, Dots, Bias Stripe, and Stripe. I also used Jewel Mobile in Brown by Alexander Henry, with a few scraps from my stash thrown in.
