Want Bento?

Now that the giant Bento Box Quilt is on its way to its new home, I can move on to other things. After Christmas, I will resume work on my Alphabet Sampler Quilt. In the meantime I'm doing what every quilter does after finishing up a big project - cleaning the sewing room.

Since I made so many Bento Box blocks, the instructions are engraved in my brain, and I certainly don't need the pattern any more. So I thought I would give it away. You leave a comment, and I will put all names together and pick a winner. But there are a couple of rules.

1. You must have a quilting, sewing or crafting blog. I have to be able to find it when I click on your name and look at your profile. Cat bloggers are welcome too.

2. You can only leave one comment. No ballot box stuffing.

3. You must leave a comment on THIS POST. No exceptions.

4. The deadline is Friday December 12. When it isn't Friday anywhere in the world, the drawing will be over.

5. I will pick a winner on Saturday December 13. I will try to contact you by email the same day. If you don't have an email address in your profile or on your blog, (and I understand perfectly if you don't), then I will leave a comment on your most recent post.

6. I will post the winner on Sunday December 14, once I have contacted the winner. If I don't hear from the winner by the end of the day on Monday, I'll pick another name.

7. I will pay postage to anywhere in the world.

8. This is an authentic Bento Box pattern in pristine condition.

9. There is only ONE.

10. It's my party and I'll cry if I want to. That means I can change the rules.

Good luck!

Hi Millie, I just discovered your blog today and wow, a giveaway already! I love your huge Bento quilt. I have never tried something this big before. I make a ton of charity quilts, but they are for kids so they are little. I love your kitten quilts. I have been making kitten quilts to send to my daughter in college. She takes them to a shelter when she goes to play with the kittens.

I've been watching your bento quilt grow and grow. I've been loving the bento block.

I'd love the pattern, but have no blog. I have enough to do with my 5 adopted kids and quilting to write about it!

Guess I'll have to keep looking at the picture and try and write my own pattern.

:(

Joyce said...

Please count me in. If I don't win it I think I'll have to buy one. I just love how yours has turned out.

I want Bento... Can't wait to see what the finished quilt looks like!

Are you kidding? Offering a way to avoid re-inventing the wheel? You've provided so much inspiration on your Bento Box journey. You've shared so many yummy-looking Bento blocks on this (almost) 4-month odyssey and we've seen it culminate in the ultimate Bed Tarp.

Oh, yes, please, I'd love the pattern (do I get extra points for kissing up?) - !

Magpie Sue said...

Add my name to the hat - please!

I'd be extremely thrilled to get your Bento pattern. I've got *lots* of strips that I can use for mine. :)

Oh, I love giveaways! Pick me, pick me, pick me (Says the dorky girl in the back!)
Cheers,

The Bento quilt looks lovely, and I especially like the block done in blues. I'm wondering what an entire quilt in blues would look like...

GARI said...

I want it, I want it. It just looks like a great pattern for a children's charity quilt.

I've been wanting to make one of these for ages and ages. Thanks, please throw me into the drawing pot.

Trisha said...

I would love the pattern! I have been wanting to make one but haven't gotten around to it. And your huge bento box quilt is so inspiring!!

Cyndi said...

I'd love this - and I even have 5 real bento boxes that I take my lunch in! Love your blog!

Camie's Kitties said...

Would you please enter me into your drawing. I have loved watching your quilts grow, both here and at Millie's blog. My cats love their Gizzies.

Thanks so much,

I've been searching for this pattern for ages and have only recently discovered that it isn't free! Grrrrrrr! I'd really love to own it as I've got a whole stash of fabric that is calling out for this pattern.

Soooo please add my name to the list too.
