Bento box and some stars

I am madly chain-piecing mixing projects, fabrics, colours etc. Amongst other, I have pieced my 2 Blue Bento Box blocks for the Rainbow challenge for this month.
I have used an aqua fabric from my stash that I bought earlier this month
and long hidden light blue fabric that I bought when I started quilting 10 years ago.
Something new, something old, something blue.... and I have been married 10 years next month!

I have also finally started my star blocks for [3x6] sampler quilt mini bee on Flicker. I choose the Ribbon Star from the Solstice Stars series following the tutorial from Faith at Fresh Lemon Quilts.
This is my test block (this one is mine, I have asked for blocks in pink and purple with a white background)
this is Lisa's block in blue and green
and this is Lisa's block in purple, green and teal (we have 2 Lisa in the group!)
I have another 4 blocks to finish for this swap due by next week-end.


  1. Great bento blocks. Great variety of mini sampler fabrics, that is the advantage of a swap -- more new fabrics to enjoy!

  2. Your bento boxes are looking great. I am sure we will all have a great time working with blue.

  3. Love your bento boxes. I haven't even touched my aqua/turquoise/teal scraps yet! (I dropped in from the Rainbow Scraps Challenge)

  4. Bento boxes are looking good, I especially like the aqua.

  5. Love bento boxes. So interesting. Pretty star blocks. I'm not familiar with that block.

  6. Love your Bento boxes and your star blocks. Love the combination of purple and pink/red too.

  7. So pretty...can't wait to see all your blocks together!

  8. Bento looks like a very fun block and a great way to show off scraps too!
