quilt monday

A bento box quilt has been on my must-do list for a few years now. I had a jelly roll that I had no idea what to do with so why not.

Funny thing, I was sewing the rows together when I realized that I had assembled the blocks wrong; oops! Took me a few evening TV watching to pull them all apart and I resewed the blocks; rightly this time lol.

quilted with Leaf Scroll
I had a difficult time choosing a pattern to quilt on this. The quilt is so busy I didn't want the quilting to compete and I didn't want to straight line this one. I found an old Keryn Emmerson pattern that worked perfectly.

 Love how it shows up on the backing

I had just enough of the brown for the inner border and the binding. The binding is pieced together out of small bits and pieces in some spots lol.

Happy Monday!

Your stitching choice is so great!! 'G' clefs are always something that appeals to me! Bentos look to be so much fun (sorry to hear about the un-sewing!) and hope to make one someday......Quilting Bucket List! Choosing the stitching pattern can, sometimes, take longer than the piecing pattern.....Love it! Hugs, Doreen

A Bento Box quilt has been on my list of must-do's for a long time, too. Yours came out great, and I love the musical quilting motif!
