    Hi Everyone! I've just joined (after being a guest for a while) and you all sound so nice. I've just started quilting and I would like to make the Bento Box. Does anyone have a pattern/instructions I could download? Thanks so much! :D

    Can you show us a photo of what it looks like? Looking at photos is my way of "shopping" without spending any money! (Eye candy)

    If you have trouble or ?s, send me a private message (click on my picture to the left, and select private message at the bottom). I did my own variation of a Bento Box a few months ago. It's really simple and easy. So if questions come up, just let me know and I'll be happy to help :mrgreen:

    Working on one right now and I used this site and googled some pictures. I couldn't figure out the instructions so I figured out what size the pieces needed to be. I was able to use fat quarters which helped because I wanted it scrappy. It is ready to go on the grace frame for quilting. :lol:
    Good luck on yours!
    If you want/need more details-send me a PM.

    2 doods, that is a great quilt. Love how bright it is. Your furry supervisor barks his approval too!

    2 Doods. That is beautiful. I made mine with Christmas prints and was not pleased with it. I donated to a friends school for a raffle. I think it brought in about $200.00 for the school.

    The nice thing about knowing both techniques is ... with one you have to have a certain amount of like-minded fabrics, so to speak.
    with the other one, you know how to use up scraps.
    Thank you to both quilters for posting these sites.

    i am so sorry about your BIL, I would suggest something bright and simple, otherwise you will be concentrating on it and not him. I do hope all goes well with you all!

    Yes, there is a pattern by Tracey Brookshier that came out years ago and has been updated and reissued. This one of those places where the whole "copyright" thing gets me so confused and weary. I have seen this pattern done in free tutorials and posts... and frankly, I don't see anything wrong with that....
