These blocks are very addictive, let me tell you. I sew them up 4 or 5 at a time, and then step back and review where I want to go with the colors for the next batch. I can see that the purple background of the block in the fourth row stands out a bit, so for the last 2 blocks I will concentrate on making the background a little darker to balance that one out.
Did I just say "last 2 blocks"? I may have to rethink this little wall hanging into something bigger just so I can keep going.
There are a couple of different names for the Monkey Wrench block. I have seen the same block referred to as "Churn Dash" and also "Hole in the Barn Door". When I told my husband all three names he said "I see a monkey wrench". I agree. Do you?
How about now?
Happy Quilted New Year!
