Project Quilting – Monkey Wrench and Flying Geese

This is just a quick post from my phone at a very late hour.  This most recent challenge was to use a monkey wrench block plus flying geese. The monkey wrench block reminds me of the box kites you sometimes see at the beach.  When I was small,  my brother and I would use rags from mom’s “rag bag” to make tails.  It was such a joy to see those tails flapping in the breeze that held our kites aloft!

It’s late and I’ll try to post a better photo tomorrow.  I think I might add more quilting to make the  string stand out better.
I like my little quilt,  though,  and I’m especially grateful for the opportunity to play along with project quilting!  My kitty advisor,  however,  is ready for bed!

Happy quilting!

  5. I think it’s perfect! Remember that high in the windy sky (which you did beautifully!) you can barely see the string! …just the tails! I love it!!
