Bento Box Blocks

These Bento Boxes are the start of a quilt from 2 jelly rolls from Connecting Threads called Cottage Blooms. They actually go quite fast and aren't hard to do. I got the pattern from Mary Quilts. You do 80 Bento Boxes and then sew them into 20 blocks of four. The setting is 4 blocks x 5 blocks.

I found a new pattern to work on ---so far all I have is the pattern and the white fabric for making the blocks. It is called "Sunday School Singers" and is by Trisha Cobb, who wrote the "Turning Twenty " books. It is done in embroidery and colors. Should be lots of fun! It has the first line of all the songs I used to sing with the kids Sunday School class that I taught many moons ago--------what memories! I bought the pattern while at Sit N Sew and opened it and our table sang all the songs---------we had a ball remembering all those fun songs!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
