Flying Monkeys

Here is this week's challenge--Kelly's Flying Monkeys.  The PQ Challenge was to use the monkey wrench and flying geese blocks.  The geese are pieced as part of the yellow bar of the monkey wrench.  I call it flying monkeys because I was thinking of Wizard of Oz and Wicked while I pieced it.  It is 24" x 24".

Through the eyes of a child

This week's Project Quilting challenge was Through the Eyes of a Child.  We were to be inspired by the artwork of a child.  I had my daughter have her two boys make some art for me to use.
I call it Martin Boys Mash-up.  The art is a combination of two pieces done by my grandsons.  The collage on the left is from Lucas, age 2.  The rocket on the orange is from Jacob, age 4.  He drew a rainbow in purple crayon on the rocket, so I quilted a purple rainbow.

Here are my inspirations.  The piece is 14" x 18"
