Mod Bento Block Swap

I recently joined a new swap – really my only other swap other than the Sew New to Me Virtual Quilting Bee. The Mod Bento Block Swap is a centralized swap organized by Jessica over at Give it a Go. We are all creating blocks (as many as we want) based on Ashley of Film in the Fridge’s Modified Bento Box tutorial.

I’ve been looking at my fabrics…making piles…

Last night I made my first block.

I’m pretty excited about this swap – something about the unknown! It’s not too late to join. Here’s the details and the Flickr group.

ETA: Look at how much work I get done when the kiddos are at grandma’s house? 🙂 I finished 4 more blocks…here is a sampling from each of them.

    Love your block! Can you tell me the name of the purple “burst” fabric?

    Love your block and all your fabric combos…especially that first one. Gorgeous!

    It’s going to be so much fun when these start arriving in my mailbox…

    I love all of the colors and the block pattern. They look like squared-up string quilt blocks.
