    I was supposed to work on quilting my windmill block project quilt last weekend. I decided to make just a couple more of these bento box blocks before I started quilting. I ended up finishing all 36 blocks, didn't get any quilting done at all.
    Now I have to convince myself to cut and reassemble them. My DH is begging me not to, he likes them are they are, but I think I'm going to go ahead with my original plan.

    I like them they way they are too. I'd have a hard time cutting them but I'm sure whatever you do will be fabulous with these gorgeous colors and fabrics. Great job on putting it all together.

    Very, very, nice!
    When I got this far on my "scraptakular," I couldn't cut them.
    Good luck!

    If the Bento quilt is a quilt on the blue brick wall on a link then I would leave the blocks that way they are. I think your blocks are beautiful like they are. Please let us know what you deside.

    i love them the way they are, as well. however, i'm sure you will do a great job cutting and reassembling them.
