Bento Box Baby Quilt Size Up For Quick and Easy

Use Just One Bento Box Block For A Sweet Baby Quilt.

Baby quilts are usually quick and easy due their size. Why not use a bento box block, size it up and choose a cute print like this Giraffe fabric. With 12 cuts only, this bento box comes together quick and looks great with any print.


Make a bento box quilt in any size with as many or as few boxes as you choose. Small blocks start at 6″ square. 80 blocks will render a nice sized quilt at 48″ x 60″. Simply double your strips and make up 12″ blocks. Then 40 squares are needed for the same size quilt. Go scrappy and use bright colorful prints for a busy fun quilt or choose specifics like this cute giraffe fabric.
