Sherbet baby bento boxes

I made this quilt for my coworker's daughter. She is having her first baby in a few weeks.

It was so much fun to make!  I used some of the strips from my Kona jelly roll along with a mix of polka dots from my stash.  The centers were from a charm pack.  I liked it but I didn't love it until I put on the border and binding.  Then it was suddenly much more attractive to me!
I had fun quilting it, too.  I just used a meander with white thread but it felt easier than it has before.  I guess I am learning how to pace my hands and feet better.

The cute hippo backing was from IKEA last summer.

Hope Mom and Baby both enjoy it!
