Bento Box.

Here it is kids, my weekend, in fabric form. Sorry I've been so stingy with the words lately, I blame it on 1) my laziness and 2) listening to This American Life whilst doing all photo editing/blog type activities. During the piecing process. This part went surprisingly fast, I think all in all it took about 5 hours to do all cutting, sewing, etc. involved in piecing.What REALLY took all the time was the quilting. Why on earth did I decide to do it like this? Sheer stupidity, I think, is the only answer. Never have I changed so many bobbins in one project. Blech.I sewed the binding on in a few sittings. I really enjoy doing the binding more than anything else really. It pulls everything together so nicely, and makes the whole thing seem real, which is nice, after you've seen it looking like a stringy mess for so long.How many pictures are necessary? Not this many.

I have to ask as well is this a premade pattern or one you made yourself? Either way do tell I would LOVE to try it myself (minus the way you quilted it because I would shoot myself before I finished *smile*)

Love it in the bold colors. Love the crazy stitch. I see this pattern around a lot, is it just a well known pattern, or is there an actual pattern?
