Quilt #34 - Three B's

This quilt has been finished for a while, but I finally got around to washing it and taking some finished pictures of it.  I've done quite a few posts over the past year on this quilt and if you do a search with the key word "Bento Box", you'll find all the posts.

This quilt was used entirely with 2.5" strips.  The non-white portions of the quilt came from one jelly roll pack of batik fabric strips.  The rest of the white background was pieces from my stash.

I used a slightly different batting this time around.  Its Quilter's Dream Cotton batting in their supreme loft variety.  Its a very thick cotton batting at 3/16 of an inch thick.  Once it was washed, it gives the quilting a lot of texture due to the thickness of the batting.

I used Superior Threads bottom line in the bobbin and King Tut for the top thread.  The top thread is a variegated green, but its a very slight variegated color, so its difficult to see unless you're in person.

I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with this quilt yet.  It was one of those things where I wanted to try out the Bento Box pattern and this seemed like a good time to try it. :c)  I'm sure I'll find a home for it somewhere.

Happy Crafting!

  1. I have never used the supreme loft although I have used the thinner batting's. How did you like working with it - of course you have a long arm so that makes a difference right there as I do not have one.

  2. Your quilt is beautiful. I'll bet it gives a great nap! Hugs
