Our guild is going to participate in Make a Difference Day in October by making baby quilts for one of our service projects. I volunteered to be in charge and we are going to invite the Girls Scouts we are working with to join us. We will work in stations, cutting, sewing, pressing, sandwiching, pin basting, machine quilting, and binding. I think the bento box blocks will work out really well. I decided to make up several squares to take to the next guild meeting. Here's one of the blue ones.
Two blue ones together.
This is the first pink one.
In addition to working with value, I also like to try to contrast the design of the fabrics in each block. I've taken lots of fabrics out of my blue and pink stash to donate for the project. I love a good scrap quilt!
