Jeanette's Bento Box

Here is a wonderful quilt made by Jeanette. It was a really fun quilt to work on. I quilted each block so there are a lot of starts and stops but it was worthwhile when I see the results. Here is a closeup of the quilting. I used a variegated thread that looks beautiful on the black background. The other fabrics are mostly batiks with a few other fabrics mixed in. There are 88 different blocks in the quilt, with 44 different fabrics. I especially like the way she pieced the borders at the corners.
I had hoped that Jeanette liked the quilt but was really excited to see her reaction. She loved it!

I am working again tomorrow at Tiny Stitches. This will be three days in a row. Mary has a bad cold so I am going to work for her. Still have several more customer quilts to finish so I can go to California on the 17th. I also have President's quilts from both guilds to finish in the next week or so. Busy, busy, busy.


  1. This is a beautiful quilt and you did a great job on the dense quilting!

  2. Beautiful. Are the loops in the border free hand, or is it a panto??? inquiring minds want to know.

  3. Great colors - who wouldn't be thrilled with it.

    Thanks for sharing it.

  4. You did a georgeous on the quilting. I love the Bento Box pattern, it's so simple but so effective.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
