I work in a fantastic new space. I work for myself. I am my own boss AND my own assistant. I don't have to answer to anyone! I am so grateful to be in this position, but one of the few things I miss about my teaching job is being part of a community. So, one of my goals has been to create my own community.
One of the ways I have done that is to be an active member of the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild.
We are doing a bento box swap with the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild. It is an example of why I love being part of a Guild (especially the Modern Quilt Guild). I would never have been motivated to give this a try, or even known what a bento block was otherwise. Three cheers for being pushed out of my comfort zone!!!
I am going to attempt three blocks using this tutorial, and we'll see which ones turn out well enough to head to the swap.
