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!
