Surprise! I've got another bento block quilt in the works, which coincidentally, is in the colours of my country's flag. Great timing, right? ;o)
It seems I just didn't get the craving for these blocks (tutorial, here) out of my system, despite having sewn them for everything from placemats (here), pillows (here), a quilt (here)... oh, and for recovering the seats of our kitchen chairs (here). Now that's either being smitten with a design or just plain crazy, right? ;o) Either way, here's where I'm at.
|Blocks are awaiting the final layout and then I can sew the quilt top together! I even have a backing fabric picked out and waiting.|
I'm actually planning this to be a cozy lap quilt for winter, as my first choice for the backing is flannel. Don't even want to dwell on that at the moment though as this is July and time to enjoy the warmth and beauty of summer time. ;o)
Hoping your first day of July is something to celebrate!
Happy Canada Day!
