Bento Box Quilt -- Finished!

I am happy to report that I am finally finished with my Bento Box quilt!


I had to add the border so that it would be long enough for us. Finished measurements are 54" (137.2 cm) by 64" (162.6 cm).


It took me awhile to decide on how I wanted to quilt it. In the end I used this quilt as my inspiration.

Here is a closer look at the quilting...

I really, really like it --

and I'm happy that I used the stripe for the binding. It makes the quilt look like candy, to me.

Here is the matching doll quilt I am keeping. It's
only slightly different than the one I gave away.

Now that it's DONE it needs a "quilt" name! Can anyone think of something better than just "bento box"?


  1. It reminds me of a box of Chocolate Covered Cherries...

    I LOVE my little doll quilt that you sent me. It hangs right above my sewing machine where I can see it every day.

  2. Em, it looks so nice! the binding. the random quilting lines! I love how quilts are always named. but.....I got nothin' for names.

  3. Something like "Boxed Cherries"??

  4. Fantastic job! I agree, it reminds me of choco cvrd cherrie.
    I have yet to try this pattern but it's on the list!
    Well done!

  5. what a gorgeous quilt! it turned out beautifully. as for the name, that part is probably the hardest part of quilting for me, so i would be of no help at all. :)
