Bento Box Quilt

As you can imagine, I haven't been very motivated lately. But a trip to a new quilt shop perked up my spirits a bit and I bought a pattern for a Bento Box Quilt.Since I cut my fabrics into 2-1/2" and 4-1/2" strips, I worked up the pattern using the 2-1/2" strips, which will give me a 12" finished block instead of a 15" one. Doesn't bother me. I sewed up four blocks, and liked them, so I went through my stash and started pairing up strips.So I am excited again about getting back into the sewing room and making quilts.

I sure like that pattern - and it's good to see that you're getting back to sewing. Sewing is an active meditation; I do hope that it will help you in your grief.

Welcome back.

(Now I'm off to continue cutting those 1,188 2.5" squares... )

Violette's memorial quilt turned out lovely. So glad you're finding your way back from grief.
