Two Quilts

This is the Bento box quilt that I'm currently working on. The blocks make up quite quickly and I love the pattern that emerges from this simple design.

This shot is the same layout from a different angle. I'm still deciding if this will be the final placement of the blocks.
I thought I'd give you the final shots on the Stars of Friendship quilt. The last post I made about this quilt I told you how I had run out of fabric for the binding. Amandajean rescued me by sending me some more so I could finish.

This shot shows the white sheet I used as a backing. I thought by showing the back you would see that the quilt top really is blue and not white - which the front looks, when photographed on its own.
It's hard to find a place indoors to show a shot of a completed quilt. My two helpers are sick at the moment, so I placed the quilt on top of the air mattress we're still using as our bed, to take this photo.

I must say that this quilting habit is quite addictive. ;o) My mind is already racing ahead with plans for starting another....

  2. Bento Box looks great, I really really like that color combo. I feel, I might be doing my Bento box soon, probably after the New Year. I am swamped with Christmas presents at the moment.

  12. That blue quilt looks so good! Great idea to show the back, the blue sure does look washed out without the contrast of the white! You have been busy!
