Finally Getting Around to the Monkey Wrench

By:  Audrey Easter

Monkey Wrench Quilt
I finished this quilt top several years ago and for some reason I'm just barely getting to the hand quilting.  Other quilt tops seemed more pressing (or exciting) and this one kept languishing away in the drawer.  All the brown and black fabric in the sashing was given to me by a lady who was trying to thin out her stash.  Don't you just love it when that happens!  There is also fabric in this quilt that my mother bought for me on her genealogy  trip to South Carolina, which I think was very sweet of her.  After all the time I spent ignoring this quilt, I am amazed at how much fun I'm having now that I'm actually doing the hand quilting on it.


  1. Your quilt is beautiful! I am working on a quilt I made a year and a half ago.

  2. Isn't it funny how often we fall back in love with abandoned projects once we decide to finish them? It is going to be a lovely quilt.
