A bento box made from 4 half log cabins or Chevron blocks and an off centre block. I even made a traditional style block. Just one all on its own!
And then a not so traditional!
This last one, the snail version, really caught my imagination and I couldn't help playing with it.
A table, perhaps? Or a pair of spectacles or something else entirely? Boo, maybe or an oh in surprise?
How about 4 blocks on point, turning in, or 4 turning out? Yes I think I got carried away!
There's a nice bento box tutorial on Film in the Fridge and Craftsy has a tutorial for the fussy cut block above in the Craftsy 2012 Block of the Month with Amy Gibson. For my varying width snail trail I used 1.5" strips up to 5" and I hope to have it up as a free download this weekend coming.
I don't have a plan for the small log cabin block yet but the others are going to find their way into a few cushions for the sofa! The snail block finished up at 19" square so I'm going to border it to bring it up to a 24" cushion. The Bento box and off centre block I'll border as well to bring up to 16"cushions. No ideahow I'm going to quilt them yet. I am totally open to suggestions!
