Bento Box is one of the easiest quilt tops I've ever made, and one that is lots of fun to put together. I really enjoyed picking out the purple and gold batiks, and seeing how the various combinations worked. I really love this quilt top.
I now need to figure out what fabric I will use for the backing of this quilt. I've sort of been making this up as I go, and consequently, using the 2.5-inch strips doesn't give me a large piece of fabric for use, so I will have to sift through my stash and see if there's a suitable fabric there.
The pattern does not call for a significant border, just a binding, actually. I think that will be fine. Doesn't this sorta' make your eyes go all goofy??
Remember, when I decided to make this pattern, I had to alter everything - the pattern called for 3" strips, but I intended to use 2.5" strips from two Bali-Pops packs. I had to supplement with additional fabrics, as there were not enough purple and golds for the quilt I wanted to make. It was easy enough to adjust the measurements.
Emma, recent high school grad, asked for a quilt in her high school colors, purple and gold. I've worked on it for about 3 weeks, with a week off when we were prepping for the graduation party. I put the rows together yesterday. So glad for another finish!!
