Yellow and Green, Bento Box Variation for Baby

I finished the commissioned quilt last night and just finished the indoor photo shoot because it is raining. Too bad the world series can’t move inside! There is a lot of excitement in Philly is about the possible rain cancellation today. Anyway, the quilt->

What is that white ribbon doing in the middle two squares?  I ran so disastrously low on that bird fabric that the ribbon fudged me the extra inch I needed. I should have added some more on the border  to make it look a little more involved, such is the problem with 20/20 hindsight.

I love the minke on the back. I should say I love the minke now that I learned how to use it. I used some Heat -n- Bond lite to baste the minke to the batting. I made a disaster of a couple other projects with minke because it has a terrible tendency to stretch and bunch and this eliminated the problem completely. I had some early moments of anxiety because it felt like there was a sheet of crinkly newspaper in the quilt before I washed it. But a hot wash and a tumble in the dryer has it feeling like a soft cozy quilt.


  1. It is absolutely gorgeous!!!

  2. The minke looks quite good quilted (nice quilting job!) In the samples I’ve seen in stores, the minke backing was left un-quilted, which looks strange and saggy. Using the fusible sounds like a great solution to keep it in check as you work on it. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Hi! I like your quilt very much! Where did you get the pattern for it, I’d love to try to make a version myself.
