Oriental Bento Box

I didn’t plan on having a finished quilt top so soon when I placed the blocks for the Oriental Bento Box on the design wall.  However once I made the necessary design decisions the top came together very quickly especially considering that each quadrant consists of 5 pieces and 4 seams.

The gold fabric used for the sashing will also be the binding fabric and I like the bit of interest it adds to the top.  Oriental Bento Box is a small lap measuring 52″ square.

Okay – really, I am going to get working on my Lincoln quilt.  Promise!

    I may have missed something — is this a pattern or an original design? I love the various iterations of the box in different sizes.

      The finished quilt top is an original design, but I don’t know if it started out as a pattern. I can’t remember if the blocks came from a pattern I borrowed or I drafted them from a picture. I actually had to measure the squares & rectangles in a finished block to cut enough pieces for the extra blocks that I needed. I apologize for being unclear in my post.
