Of course it isn't finished. I totally underestimated how long it takes to make something like this, but I did have a completed square to show her. I'm hoping to have it done in time for her March birthday.
The name of the quilt is Bento Box, which I thought was appropriate since Kate loves Japanese food.
Also, these are her favorite colors.
It's created by making a block of Courtyard Steps, then splitting that into four sections and mixing up the sections to make new squares. Already I've messed up a bit, since the longer outer strips should be
outside of the longer inner strips, but I didn't find that out until I had several squares made and I was not about to rip out stitches. We are not quilt experts in my family and I think it will be fine!
Tomorrow I'll be meeting with friends who are quilt experts and I hope they will help me determine whether I should put sashing between the squares.
Already I'm starting the year with a new adventure!
Will I persevere?
For Kate, definitely.
