    Sweet Bento Box

    Scrappy and Sweet Bento Box for a friend. Made entirely from my stash, more of a hoard, really. My First Assistant and Quality Inspector welcomes you!

    great stash quilt, came out wonderful. you must be proud of yourself for shopping in the stash.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    LOL on the hoard.

    I love the scrappy bento box and the piecing on the back too.

    Mrs. Finch, I like your scrappy Bento Box. I have this pattern, and have never made it. You have inspired me to try it.

    When you pulled from your stash, did you go through the colors and hand select the colors you thought went well together, or did you just put anything and everything in?

    I have yet to make a true scrappy quilt, I usually do a color scheme. I would love to know your thought process in choosing which scraps. Thanks!
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    Love it when you can use what you have on hand and don't have to buy fabric.

    I haven't either. I will put it on my todoit list. It's already about a mile long, whatever!
    I also agree that your colours go well together. That is an area I struggle with at times in scrappy quilts.

    I have a bento box cut out and started from years ago! Yours really inspires me to pull that thing out and git her done! Beautiful work! Congratulations!
