This month we are making blocks for Ulrike who sent us 2 white strips and 2 printed strips of fabrics and asked us to make some Bento box blocks with them.
Amelie found a very good tutorial to make the blocks from the Quilts of Love blog and the blocks got together very quickly. So much so that I have decided to make a quilt for myself as well. I have combined this with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The colour is red this month so I have made 2 red Bento box blocks. Although I am slightly cheating because I haven't used scraps for my blocks but fabrics from my stash. These are fabrics I bought because I thought there were pretty but without a project in mind and the fabrics have been sitting in my stash ever since (some of them for over 5 years I guess), waiting for the right quilt/time. I was also scared of cutting it off because there are pretty - how silly! Anyway, here is a way to use and ENJOY the fabrics I bought because I liked them!
Anyway here is my first red block
See you soon with more!
