Quilty projects

Not much time to write and darn it, our home computer isn't working which means I can't post any of the pictures saved on there. I may never get caught up on the posts I have swirling in my head. Luckily, some of my photos are still on the camera - including these.

What do you think? I'm participating in a black and white quilt challenge. There are 10 participants and everyone has to make 10 each of two different blocks measuring 12.5 inches. The first pattern is the Bento Box. I'm not sure if the second has a name. I made it up based on some leftover pieces I had.
The second photo includes some of the blocks I'm making for the Polack's quilt. He wanted something with greens and blues and since I loved the improvisational nature of my Starburst quilt, I decided to do it again. It's so freeing to not worry about measuring or precise quarter inch seams. I may never go back to traditional quilting again!

I love the blocks! Did they take very long to put together? I always seem to like all the different versions I see of the bento box pattern.
