Green Monkey Wrenches - A Finish!

Green Monkey Wrenches
It's a finish! 
40 x 60

Throughout 2022 and 2023 one of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) projects was Monkey Wrench blocks in three different sizes made with scraps in the color of the month.  This one has most of the green 10 inch Monkey Wrench blocks. 

It was too windy for close up pics. Most turned out blurry. 

It has a green backing and binding. 
It was quilted on my DSM with lines. 

The theme this month in my sewing space is March Madness (Quilting) Marathon.  I'm going to concentrate on finishing up a lot of the small tops I have in the TBQ (to be quilted) pile.  They will then be donated to:

And sew on...

CELEBRATE! (my word of the year)

March 2 - Hobbies. I'm glad I have several. Everyone should have at least one. 

"Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto."

Another great finish. I love these Monkey Wrench quilts. said...

Star blocks, nine patches and churn dash/monkey wrenches are some of my favorite blocks. Your green monkey wrench finish is terrific. I like your March Madness (Quilting) Marathon. . .I need to follow suite! LOL I hope you have lots more finishes to share by the end of the month!

I have followed your blog for some time and am always amazed at the number of beautiful quilts you make. Like you, I quilt my quilts on my DSM and am thinking about a new machine. Would you be willing to share what machine you are currently using to quilt your quilts? Thank you so much for your blog! Jenny

A very charming quilt! Over the birthday weekend, I made my mind up and to change things, especially stress and fretting. There is enough out there already, no more ruminating on it. I don't know if I will finish this new decade, so I better live it each day in gratitude. You inspire me.
