Copy cat, copy cat.....

Call it being a copy cat if you wish, call it inspiration, call it whatever you like. After seeing Amanda's new Bento Box quilt I just had to start one. LOL

I had some backing and binding fabric left over from the Happy Hour I just finished and so of course I had to buy more fabric to supplement it. I was just so in love with the green and aqua color combination that I just went with it. I followed the tutorial here. Fat quarters work well for it and have very little left over, just enough for some nice little scraps for the scrap stash. ;)

The colors remind me of the sky and the water and the palm trees that we saw on our trip to Cancun a few years ago. One of the best vacations I have ever had even though it was a very short trip. The swirls of the paisleys kind of remind me of the water, too. I think I might have to keep this one, lol. When I am sitting under it some cold Minnesota winter night I can try to imagine I am back in the Carribean. LOL
