do. Good Stitches November 2011

This month we were asked to do Modified Bento boxes in Americana colors: "turkey reds, faded reds, dark blues, dusky-grayish blues, tans, beiges, browns, an occasional gray or black". This was a real stretch for me since, as many of you know, I am generally drawn to bright, saturated colors. I also discovered I have almost no reds in my stash, and the few I do have are florals or juvenile. Note to self: keep an eye out for more modern reds.

I ended up going with mostly solids to stay true to the color story. For some reason, the natural beige keeps showing up too white in the photo. I promise its really a nice beige color keeping with the theme.

These will get cut up and reassembled, similar to the quilt below (click through for reference).

It's always good to stretch ourselves, right?
