New bento box baby quilt

We have a new baby coming within our school family, so I've decided to do another bento box baby quilt.  The parents do not want to know if the baby is a boy or a girl, so green seems a good choice.

The palette was inspired by a pillow that a member of PTA already made for the baby's nursery.  She was kind enough to give me some scraps, so I used the green, white, and black scraps in the blocks and bought some great fabrics to use for back and borders.

I will do a tiny border using the white on black fabric and then the wider border will be the middle fabric.  It has tiny black owls on it.  The white on green is a flannel for the back.
The first two blocks are taking shape.  It's fun to do this pattern again after more than a year.
