Challenge to Myself Number Eleven Top Finished!

This is Number Eleven in the Challenge to Myself. It is just the top. It is called Bento Box in Blues. This one proved to be quite a challenge indeed------I cut it out and discovered that I had cut one of the pieces wrong---too small-----and it affected all the other pieces. So I put that aside for another project and ----------what else?----------------started over!!! Since I was using scraps, I had plenty of fabric-----good thing!!!

Now I have one more quilt to go and I will have reached the end of the book. the next one is polka dot baskets---they sure are pretty and I sure hope I can do them. Haven't looked too closely at the pattern yet.

Decided to tackle a jelly roll and so I am doing one from the book called "Open a Can of Worms" by Debbie Caffrey. I used the Omnigrid 96 and 98 rulers for the first time and I really like them. You use them to cut the 2 different parts of the flying geese that make up the star points. They really worked slick!! (no affliation etc, etc, just satisified customer!)

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
