No, that's not really true. I am able to sketch out a quilt a lot faster than I can actually find time to sew it in. Not a huge surprise, but I haven't quite found the time to finish this quilt top, but I'm so excited about it that I can't wait to share how it's coming together now that I've made all the blocks.
Like so many of you, I am a big fan of Ashley's tutorial on bento boxes. I recently found myself with a couple of extra charm packs and a hankering to try making a bento box block. So...I improvised. I read through Ashley's tutorial and adapted it the best I could to make it work with the fabric I had on hand. And, well, I think I'm pretty proud of how it's turning out. It was tedious work making these blocks, but once I got the hang of it, I really enjoyed it.
I'm going for simplicity here, so the design is going to be pretty simple. I'm considering making a border around each block before sashing it them in Kona Bone, but I'm still debating on that. Naturally, I want to use my most favorite Kona, Kona Coal, but I'm not sure I want to use a dark gray in a holiday quilt. And if I don't use Kona Coal, I'm not sure what color solid I would use. I'll probably waffle on this for the rest of the day and then make a decision and go for it.
