Bento Box Quilt Finished


My first finish for the Spring to Finish Challenge is this Bento Box quilt. I made the quilt top using a collection of fat quarters and with the small off cuts,

pieced together a scrappy strip for the back. I chose to bind the quilt using a deep chocolate brown (looks like black in the photos) which frames the blocks and compliments the backing fabric.

The back of the quilt shows more clearly the random line quilting I machine stitched. I used painters tape to guide me for the first dozen lines I stitched, after that, it was freehand.


My quilt finished out at 64" square and will be used as a sofa quilt. It's seems that there's a shortage of quilts for movie watching or book reading around here. I aim to change that! ;o)



It feels so good to be able to take this project off my to-do list!

Gorgeous quilt! Love the pieced strip on the back, too.
One of these days I'm going to have to learn how to quilt.
