Becky and Wyatt's Quilt

A number of years ago, Pan Denesyk of Mad About Patchwork, came to the London Friendship Guild and did a work shop on a variation of a bento box block.  I had started mine with Kona solids and never had an occasion to finish the quilt.  A niece was getting married and I rooted around in my drawers for inspiration and found this project.  After consulting with my sister in law to see if Becky would like the colours, I went ahead and finished the quilt in time for the wedding at the end of September.  I was not able to go to the shower in August, so made a matching pillow to go with the quilt for a belated shower gift.  It was fun working with solid colours and planning out the different blocks.

I just happened to have this backing fabric in my stash and the colours matched perfectly.

Beautiful! I haven’t had a chance to see it in real life yet so this is fun!

Nice. I love how Bento boxes always look kinda wonky, even though they aren't wonky.
