Last night I finished up three squares for the Mod Bento Box II Swap. I am already far more in love with these squares than the ones I did for round one. During round one it was suggested that we use jewel tones which at some point transitioned into fabrics that were saturated with color. After seeing the blocks that came back in the first round I thought these Nest fabrics would blend well with the squares I had received. The first time around I didn't keep any of my own squares. This time though that is going to be different. Two of these quarters will be staying here with me. I started cutting some Anna Marie Horner last night to make two more squares. I made 10 blocks for the first round for a total of 40 quarters. This time I am only planning to make five or six blocks. But they are pretty easy to chain piece so who knows what will end up happening. I want to have a nice size quilt with these blocks but I haven't really taken the time to figure out many squares I will need for that. The other thing I haven't figured out yet is if I want to just sew the blocks together as is or if I want to add a thin piece of white between the four pieces. I'm think small,like a fourth of an inch when finished just to add some deminsion. Or I guess I could sew the blocks together without the white and then just add a sashing. What would you do?
