I’ve finally finished my design and my quilt top. I must say it was great to get it finished and it was a great use of the monkey wrench blocks. I found I had to move the red out to the border as it just overpowered the tea towel image itself. The completed large monkey wrench blocks made a great finish to the design too!
My completed quilt top, as you can see is quite large and will fit my queen size bed perfectly.

I’ve been working away on these blocks for some time now. A project one of my sisters commenced and handed over to me to complete for her. Japanese fabrics. It will fit the top of her double bed.
The blocks are a bit fiddly to make. The effect of reversing the alternate block really adds some appeal to the design. I really felt quilting was needed on the blocks and quilted a Japanese motif which I really like.

Oh so pretty! I think the light blue sets it off beautifully.

I decided to make one of these in my favourite style; scrappy. I have been working on it for some months now. It is a birthday gift for one of my sisters who loves orange. It will fit on her queen size bed beautifully. I must admit I’m quite taken with it.

I was gifted three unwanted arcs and decided to make a small quilt to practice some quilting.
After I’ve finished admiring and patting it I will probably donate it to the local hospital to cover a new baby.
