WooHoo!!  Decision made!
And I'm using none of the ideas from last week.
Well....maybe just one little idea that I liked I'm keeping.

After all that playing around with those assorted strips....and your very generous suggestions (thank you very much)..... I just wasn't moved by that design.
You see, I really like this fabric line and I'm super pleased with this pattern and I want to expand this quilt to a nice generous Queen size.
I also know that I don't want to just slap a bunch of plain borders on it to make it bigger like I usually do.
I want the borders to make their own statement yet compliment the Bento Box without swallowing it up.
Soooo I went back to the drawing board (which I don't actually have) and came up with a whole new idea.
I know!  I know!!  But that's what my mind does best....Change!

Here's the start of the new design for the borders that I'll be sewing for awhile.
1" strips sewn together to measure 3½" squares and 2" squares to make a four patch.

So now it looks like this will take me awhile to get finished with all the piecing I'll be doing.... so for now I'm heading over to link up with Judy's Design Wall.
Join me there..... and....
Thanks for stopping by....Linda


  1. I know your border will be just perfect for the quilt, Linda. Once again, those fabrics are beautiful!

  2. Love the fabrics and curious as to what you are doing with it.
