This is quilt #5 that I started last week.
There are more shades of blue and green coming into the mix, this is just the start. I am hoping for a cool watercolor effect when it all comes together. I have wanted to make my own bento box quilt since first laying eyes on this one. All the fabrics have been in my stash for about a year, I suppose. You see, that is the reason (partly) for all this starting madness that I have going on. Ultimately, I am hoping to clean out the stash a little bit...well, a lot. And then when I read this post, well, that was the final shove that I needed to start my own.
With all that we had going on this weekend (an out of town friend visiting, a fantastic Phil Keaggy concert, church and a baby dedication for my nephew) I am pretty surprised that I found time to start another quilt, but you know, there is ALWAYS time to start another quilt in my world. :)

Oh I'm so excited that you started a Bento Box Quilt. Can't wait to see the finished product. Thanks for mentioning my challenge in your post. It's so fun to get lots of people involved in being creative. I have started my own. I'll have to post a picture of my work in progress in my next update. Keep quilting!
There was a wonderful Bento Box quilt at the quilt show this weekend.
I recently finished a second bento box. They are so cute and come together so easily. Very nice colors you've chosen!
As always, I can't wait to see the finished product!
Now... Off to find the bento box pattern.
Oh my, this is is going to be stunning! I'm in awe of your prolific quilt-making.
I love the colors! This is going to be beautiful!
I'm in the middle of a blue bento box quilt too!
Wow this is going to be just stunning, can't wait to see more.
I immediately fell in love with Kathy’s Bento-Box quilt. I’m sure yours will be stunning too!
What beautiful cool colours - you have made some lovely progress. That design looks nice and contemporary.
I love the bento box pattern, and your take on it is wonderful! The cool aqua colors are great.
I actually prefer your choice of colour!
I'm hoping to do a bento box , but I'm still working on Thriftin and craftin's first inspiration challenge..
now i want to make a bento box too! you are a bad influence in the best way!
Looks great! The Bento Box pattern is on my list to do too.
My daughter Natalie is making this quilt. I love it in any color or theme I think. Nicely done.
I just need a DAY in your quilting world to get myself going :)
So you got to go see "pill" as we call him? Jason would have loved that. I saw him years ago. He is really good. Love the bento box quilt, too.
I'm glad you are working on a bento box! I've been curious about these since I saw the same one you linked to. The quilting is awesome on it!!
so cool! I've always wanted to try out that pattern!
lauren's bento box pushed me to make one too! they're so great.
holy moly...we must be mind readers!! I'm doing this quilt too, see my latest post!!
love the colors in this
oh I think I know now what to do for my bedroom...
Ooh, this is going to be so pretty! I love the colors.
do I hear Bento box? I should do one too, inspired not bad influenced:D
I've seen lots of Bento Box quilts on the Internet, but none of them struck me until I saw yours! Your color choices are fabulous--like a subtle transition from water to air. Are the fabrics hand dyed?
I never have trouble starting. Finishing is another story.
Love the colour scheme............can't wait to see the final outcome....looking great so far!
