The Beginnings of a Bento

Ahhhh... Fall Break...  finally.  We have been in school since August 4th, and teachers since July 29th, with only Labor Day to offer a brief respite from the craziness that comes with the start of the school year.  So after nine loooong weeks, to say I've been looking forward to this break is quite an understatement.

Since finishing Fishing at the Creek and delivering it to my principal (who loved it, by the way),  I've been working on turning this-


Into this-


A bento box quilt with shades of yellow and gray.  I've been collecting fabrics in these colors for awhile, and have finally gotten around to making it.  So far, I'm loving the way these super modern colors and graphic prints are working with the bento box pattern.  I can't wait to get these blocks mixed up and sewn back together.

I'm hosting the Memphis Area MQG meeting at my house tomorrow, and for this month, we're doing a sew-in.  Looks like I know what I'll be working on!
