    Hi friends!
    Thanks to the board member who directed me to a blog by Crystal who has a shortcut for making the Bento box quilt blocks.
    My darling sweet youngest son is getting married in March to a Japanese woman and I'm making it for them in batiks.

    The reason I'm telling you all about if first is I want you to kick me off this board if you see me too much LOL
    I need to get going on this hahaha :D:D:D

    I think it will be a wall hanging b/c I can't MQ well yet so I'll need to hand quilt it.

    This tute is WONDERFUL!! I actually drew out a bentobox in my quilting notebook as a pattern I want to do. This will save me so much time!

    Bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables, usually in a box-shaped container.

    I also have been wanting to make this pattern. I have had a picture of it hanging in my sewing room for about 4 years!!! Yikes! So thanks for the great tute. You have spurred me on to get going with it.

    Great tutorial. I made a bento box the old way and this seems much easier.
