All of my quilts are really only fit for babies - they haven't quite developed any critical skills yet and can't tisk-tisk at my uneven stitches! Even so - i'm kind of pleased with this one. I started it before I knew whether my next niece was going to be a niece or nephew and I thought the colors would work for either. (and you may recall, it was something I felt bad I hadn't finished yet!) This block is called a bento box. Um, now that I looked at other bento box quilts to make sure I was remembering the right name, I might have kinda done it wrong. I mean it's not wrong - it just may not quite be a bento box! oh well! oh, you can't really gauge how big this thing is from the picture - it's only about 36x36, I think.
I used a tiny red gingham for the binding!
I did a pretty piss poor job of the actual quilting. Some of the stitches are too long because I just couldn't seem to keep an even speed on my free motion action - I've got to get better at this! It's kind of terrifying - so much to maneuver and so little to grip onto!
I made this back snazzy too - it was partially out of necessity because I didn't have enough of the green kona!
