Bento Box Quilt

This quilt pattern is called Bento Box -- not sure I see the connection to a real bento box but I do love the pattern.  It was fun & easy to make.  I used strips of fabric that I had cut for a class I took a few years ago -- I never did make the quilt I set out to make so instead used the 2-1/2" strips to make Bento Box instead.
I did hours of machine quilting -- adds some interest & was easy to do, just time consuming.
Reverse side of the quilt.
And this is my first quilt without borders!  I've been wanting to make a borderless quilt for a while now...so finally got around to it.
And what's a new blog posting without Teddy.  My Teddy!
