Bold Bento Boxes

I've been wanting to do a Bento Box quilt for a long time and seeing as how I've cleared out many UFOs (finally!!), I thought it was a good idea run with it and use some of the shop's new fabrics as well as some stash favorites. I sometimes think I do more collecting of fabric than sewing with fabric. I'm so happy to finally see some of these lovelies in blocks.

The bento starts as a courthouse steps block seen below.


Then, boldly slash your blocks into quarters. (It's hard at first to run that rotary cutter through newly sewn blocks.) Mix them all up and get ready to sew again!


I think it's kinda fun! I have 9 unsewn blocks done and am going for 7 more.
