Even with a fair piece of the plaid to work with, it wasn't quite large enough for the whole backing to be made from it. Time for some creative piecing, right? I made a few more Bento box blocks, made some half blocks and even threw in the block I made for a sample in the block tutorial I wrote a month ago. Waste not, want not! ;o)
I think it works. In a crazy-one-of-a-kind sort of way. Just the sort of thing I like, because along with taking pleasure in creating, I do love using what I have on hand and being pleasantly surprised with the unique results.
