Focus Through the Prism Monkey Wrench

My friend, Kim Lapacek, has started a new series of quilt challenges for the rest of this year.  She calls it Focus Through the Prism .  We had to buy a special packet of rainbow colored fabric (ROYGBIV from Cherrywood).  Each month, she challenges us by giving us a block as inspiration.  We need to make a 20" quilt, inspired by the block, with one of the rainbow colors as a focus.  For the month of May, the block is the Monkey Wrench.  Here is my interpretation....
I call it Curious George and the Monkey Bars.  I think you can figure out my focus color--yellow.  It is a variation of the monkey wrench.  When Kim issued the challenge, Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat immediately came to mind.  I knew I had to use yellow to make this quilt.  I found a quilt block in one of my books that is a modified monkey wrench.  The narrow black pieces on the center diamond and the corner triangles are piping.

Here is Curious George.  I think I did a great job on him!

  1. Curious George is really lifelike. I'm learning a lot from this challenge and seeing what everyone has made.
