Bento Box

I joined the "Strip Club" at A Quilter's Garden this year and received my first batch of strips for $10 around the first of the month.  There are about 2 yards of fabric in each batch, so it's a good deal, and someone has done all the cutting besides.   They're much more coordinated than I expected which is great.

After moving the strips around and sorting by color, I decided to try a Bento Box pattern with them.  Here's the first 12" block:
It's really easy which is good for this stressful time of year.  I have enough to make 12 blocks with a few singles for a border or two, which should make a nice little quilt.  Should be a nice practice piece for some free motion quilting... if I'm brave enough.  :-)
