Today let's look at the Monkey Wrench quilt block. It is an easy and quick block to sew together. The Monkey Wrench block has been around a long time - it was published in the Ohio Farmer in 1898 and was probably around before that! Of course, being it's been around a long time, the Monkey Wrench goes by a bunch of other names - Double Wrench, Alaska Homestead, Dragon's Head, Hole in the Barn Door - to name a few.
Today let's sew together a Square and a Half quilt block that appeared in the Ladies Art Company publication. Traditionally, the Square and a Half block is made with just two colors - a light and a dark - but, of course, I had to add my own spin to it and use five colors!
