Quilting Retreat Progress

I am back from my Quilting Retreat, some great fun was had, lots of quilting progress and yummy food. A purple toned Bento Box quilt top, nice and bright, a perfect lap size. I completed the top at 2.00 am on Saturday, lol, stayed up so late and spent the next day in slow motion!I need to buy a purple backing, the one I had just doesn't suit. I am not sure which teacher this will be for, I thought I might just make the quilts up and let the kids pick??
From one of the quilting shops, I bought a Leanne Beasley Bag pattern, well, mum bought it for me, yay! I am going to change the pattern a tad, making it bigger to hold my rotary mat, and I will repeat the daisy's on both sides and not do the creative hand stitching panels.

Gorgeous quilt. Purple is my favourite colour so it's lovely to see a quilt featuring it!

Not Bento Box is not as nice as the one you gave me!! Thats still the best! So wish I was at the retreat, just to see cousin T drink all that wine!

I love, love, love the Bento Box. I may steal your idea and use it as a teacher quilt, I have been wondering what style to do.
