WIP B's Bento Box Quilt

I worked out a great deal with a friend of mine, B.  She bought all the material to make a queen size quilt and I get to make the quilt.  B is also paying for the professional long arm quilting.  I get to do all the fun stuff and I didn't have to pay for materials.  B chose a pink and chocolate brown color scheme, one of my favorite combinations.

B wanted something rectilinear and I've always wanted to do a bento box, so that's what we decided on.
I made all the squares and and cut them into quarters.  Now I'm in the process of sewing them back together again.  Working on this quilt makes me so happy.  I love pink and brown together.

I've pull MIL's framed squares out to finish it up.
The in law's 40th wedding anniversary is coming up and I want to give them this quilt.  I need to get it done.  I got stuck on the back, but now it's looking good.
MIL is an English teacher and when I saw the bookshelf quilts appearing I knew I needed to work that into her quilt.

  1. Love those blocks, especially the bookshelf.

  2. Oh, wow! **Love** the bookshelf on the back! I need to bookmark this for future inspiration if you don't mind. :)

  3. I love both these quilts. The bookshelf is such a personal touch, I'm sure your MIL will love it!

  4. The bookshelf back was a great idea! It looks really good.
