For the next seven challenges, we are to use one color from the Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabric Bundle. It is a ROYGBIV selection of fabrics. It was a hard decision. See Saturday's post for photos of my selections of fabrics.
I selected green! It is my least favorite color, but I really liked the green print fabric.
I also selected some brighter greens (but I didn't use them) and a print with some blue in it.
I started cutting...
I made 3 UNEVEN Monkey Wrench Quilt Block and added some skinny strips in between - like a Tic Tac Toe grid. I got the idea from laying the pieces out and it was ready to sew together and I thought it looked cool with the space in between. I cut a strip and I loved it!
Took photos of the steps.
First, I made the 9 sections for an uneven Monkey Wrench Quilt Block and then I cut a 1 inch strip.
I added it to all the intersecting parts. See the photos.
Stitch the center row together first.
I named the quilt block "Tic Tac Toe Monkey Wrench"!
Next I made the quilt top --- 20" X 20" I actually cut it 20 1/2" by 20 1/2" as it will shrink up with the quilting.
Not going to share how I made the quilt top as I sewed it "Improv". I added a piece here and a piece there and trimmed and added another piece.
Now, I need to select which direction is the top and the bottom BEFORE I quilt it. I always stitch in my name and the year in all my quilts. I need to decide where the bottom right hand corner is.
