Yellow and Grey Quilts

I started a commissioned quilt recently for a yet-to-be-born baby.


My longtime favorite Bento Box was the go-to pattern. And then I decided to piece the back. But I got carried away, so I think I actually have 2 tops here.


One for the soon-to-be baby and one to sell. But the question is, which one for the friend of a friend?


I am talking to you, Kathleen! Which one do you like better?


Could you love those little bees more? I love them! And if you were wondering where the yellow wall came from…


My soon-to-be screened-in porch is coming along nicely! Next, a roof. Which is going to be pretty darn tough and I am already planning ways to reward my hubby. I might have to arrange a fishing weekend soon, which is a pretty good trade for a screened-in porch, no?

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.

Bento Box Variation Squares

From what I can tell, a true bento box square would be 8 fabrics per square but I made a variation for my baby quilts with only 5 prints . Above is the start for the commissioned yellow and green baby quilt. I feel like I have searched everywhere for yellow and green prints that are not flowers (or gingham, I kinda hate gingham) and come up with the above, which are still pretty floral, Hopefully they are abstract enough that the recipient will not think it girly…

Bento Box for baby

Bento Box Variation, for some lucky Baby

This is my first quilt I am selling online. It can be found in my esty store, the first link on the list on the right. It is really bright but I love it and I think it will make someone out there a very nice baby quilt! Update! This quilt is sold and has a loving home!
