For the Monkey Boy

My latest finish is one that was supposed to be finished for Christmas 2013, but had to continually be delayed due to my condition. I am happy to say that as of today, "Monkey Wrench" is finally completed!

I made this for my 16 year-old step-son whom has been called "Monkey Boy" by his father ever since he was little. I make him flannel monkey pajama bottoms every Christmas since his father and I have been married.

The Monkey Wrench or Churn Dash pattern has been on my Quilt Pattern Bucket List for quite some time, so I simply had to make it for the Monkey Boy. It is made with scrap fabrics because that is who I am - a scrap quilter!

I quilted it with an outline (stitch in the ditch) and an additional echo quilting on the inside of the pattern and sashing. The background is simply a meandering stipple stitch.

The border is made up of 2" x 4" rectangles alternating with white squares. 

The corners have a small Monkey Wrench block.

I am happy to have this finished and now I can move on to the next project!

Happy Quilting!
