{ bento box quilt }

    Newer Older

    UH-OH. dilemma time. do i quarter all these blocks to make a modified bento box? i really thought i'd have no trouble cutting these blocks up, but now i am seriously considering NOT cutting. but i do love a good scrappy-looking quilt, and chopping and re-sewing would make this one look a lot more scrappy.

    what to do?

      After I followed the link to your inspiration,
      I really think you need to cut these ...
      the end result will be even better then
      these beauties as they are now.

      Either way you'll have a beautiful quilt - but I'm with Good Soapworks Mom - cut them!

      It'll look really good either way, but I'm loving it just the way it is.

      You are not getting any wiser this way, but I am still going to say it: You know what you have now (so if you love it, leave it) and you don't know exactly what you are going to get (but if you like excitement, go for it)
      I love it!!

      This is so, so pretty. Maybe just cut a few to see where it takes you??

      They look fabulous, but I'm leaning toward cut, cut, cut. But then, I've always wanted to make a bento box (modified or otherwise). Good luck!

      I recently made a modified bento box quilt and love the fun pattern, so my vote is go for it - snip snip!

      Stick with the original plan...you can always make another one of these! Every quilt you make is so fantastic that I'd love to see the outcome on a scrappy modified bento box.

      I'm in the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' camp.

      It's just gorgeous!

      These are beautiful, but would be even more so as a bento box quilt. :)
