Bento Box Quilt

So, this is the block I decided on for the Chestnut Hill fabric by Joel Dewberry. It's a very simple construction, but I was hoping for a construction that would allow the fabrics to do the work. We'll see how they go, I'm only worried that they will all run together and this block won't be seen on its own...

This is really nice - I say do some more blocks and see how it looks - I know what you mean, the fabrics are so gorgeous that you don't want them to be lost (and the block pattern) when placed next to each other. But you have had such a great eye with your other quilts, I know it will all come together!

I loved the comment you left me - that last sentence was so touching and completely true. That was my same exact thought and why I gave up on making her quilt be perfect. Thanks for the perspective!!

That looks really beautiful. I can't wait to see how the quilt comes together. Stunning choice of fabrics.

Neat - that was my guess based up on the stips that you showed yesterday. (I plan to do this with some of my Katie Jump Rope fabrics mixed with Kona Snow.)

Interesting block, after you have a few layed out you could always consider sashing between.

I've been wanting to make the Bento Box. I'll enjoy watching you construct yours! :)

I have made this pattern top, and really enjoyed it, I added a couple of unexpected fabrics (I think they were ugly) to give the top a bit more pop. These fabrics are gorgeous, looking forward to seeing more blocks

Just watch your contrast. If they do blend too much think about sashing sets of blocks.

What a great block!

I made this pattern once as well - I quite like the pattern. Although what I did was use a jelly roll and each block was just two fabrics. Love the fabrics you are using - see what happens when you make a few more - I bet it will look great!

Hi I am a quilter and just found your blog. I love the color combinations you are using in your quilts! I'll have to come back and look at some of your older posts to see some more of your work when I have more time. Rhondi

I think that block is a good choice for the fabric - it looks great.
