Birthday Bento Box Quilt!

What a week I have had for quilts recieved! Back in May I had a birthday, back in February, Ad had her birthday. This year is handmade gifts year between us. She recieved this quilt here and I recieved this one above! Its stunning! A Bento Box pattern, a pattern that has been on my to do list of patterns one day. All done from a jelly roll she tells me.

The girls quite enjoyed snuggling under it this afternoon eating their afternoon tea. I told them not to wipe their fingers on it afterwards!

Thanks again Ad! Its beautiful, I love it! Is Handmade Gifts on for next year too???

So, who did the label and binding on it?! Great quilt, I love the pairing of the fabrics (beautiful range)! I hadn;t realised quite how big it was until I saw the girls with it. Great new banner, too! Anything do do with your blogiversary, or just found something you wanted to use?

Well done Adds! That is just gorgeous. Another great way to use a Jelly Roll.

Happy Birthday Helen!
