Bento Box Top complete. Maybe.

Yes, I did it! In one day, I cut and pieced a bento box top. I like it but the jury is still out as to whether I will add a border or two. The pattern doesn't call for it and I need a night to sleep on it and look at it again to see if I am good with that or feel it needs a finish. I'm leaning towards being good with it for laziness sake. :)

What do you think? It's definately a lot more yellow than I've ever used!

ETA: I slept on it and woke up feeling it needed a border and the green fabric that was going to be the backing and binding is going to be it. Maybe a simple 3" strip all the way around or maybe this border pattern which Judy Laquirada so kindly posted a tuturial for. I could intersperse it with leftover whites if I have enough. 

Next goal, have quilted by Friday. A bold goal considering there's something else on the frame now that hasn't even been started.

Ok, firstly if you insist on making a quilt in ONE day I cannot comment on both posts about it because of the time difference.

I just got home from work (nobody else is home and it's so bloody peaceful here -even the dogs are behaving themselves ) opened up my dashboard, saw you were planning a quilt , thought I'll comment on that in a sec and 10 seconds later saw you had finished it.

Love the quilt! I can imagine you snuggled under it, snogging wine. I think you totally pulled this quilt off, and I am hereby dubbing you my Legend of the Week.

Now chuck it on the quilting machine and call me up when you're ready to crack open the bottle.

This is a very happy quilt. I think the simple green border will look great. Though I think the pieced border is fun.

Your quilt is very pretty and love the blue and yellow combo. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. :)

I like your bento box quilt. I started one about a month ago and it almost made me want to puke, so I went on to something else. I fully intend to give it another go with different fabrics. And how the heck do you get one done in a day? I have a couple things in the works that I keep working on, but the fact that they're not done yet is starting to tick me off. Anyway, this is my first visit, but I'll be back. Cheers!
