Bohemian Bento Box

Multi-cultural? Whatever, it's finished. The pattern is a Bento Box variation, and the border print is named "Bohemian" according to the selvage. So, Bohemian Bento Box it is.

Simple diagonal grid quilting in the center using white thread. Medium meander in black thread in the border, around and through the print so the stitching doesn't cover the print anywhere. Soft and drapey, and about 58 x 70" after quilting.

It's destined to become a Christmas gift. Done in plenty of time, yay!

So did it make a dent in my stash of black & white prints? Um, not so much. There will have to be more black & white quilts in my future. But I did use up a couple of coral FQs, plus a lot of scraps.

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Crazy Mom Quilts


  1. I like the fabric you chose for the binding. Congratulations! I hope you do a gift roundup post so we can see all the lovely quilts together that you are gifting this year.

  2. Congrats on a beautiful finish. And congrats on getting it done well before Christmas. The last few times I've targeted making quilts as Christmas gifts, I run it right up to the wire.
