Almost 4 years ago I made a scrap quilt which I called a "Riot of Colour".
Two years previously I had taken part in a Bento Box blocks swap. I seem to remember I was the only UK participant, one from Canada (I think), everyone else from the USA.
I loved the idea of making 20 blocks, cutting them into quarters, sending 3 of those quarters on to the organiser and then waiting to see what my parcel contained! It really was exciting. However, around the time the blocks arrived I discovered I had breast cancer, so treatment rather put sewing onto the back burner.
Fast forward to July 2013...................... I discovered the pile of bright blocks in one of my Sewing Room Sort Outs and a Riot of Colour was born. It had to be gifted to our beautiful granddaughter as she is the bright spark for us!
Dear GG spends a lot of time at our house and I decided I would like to "borrow" the quilt back to put on the bed she has here.
So, here it is, on her bed at Granny and Grandpa's house:
It was rather dull when I took these photos and the colours don't appear as bright as they actually are!!
I loved looking for "my" Bento quarters ....... amazingly I still have some scraps of them left.
