Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Rotary Cutting
  • Sewing a 1/4 inch seam
  • Working with half square triangles

Pattern Description:

This is a fun baby quilt made with two sizes of Monkey Wrench Blocks. I was inspired by the cute monkey fabric, but this quilt is a wonderful way to use any focal fabric combined with solids or tonal fabrics to make a small quilt for a child or infant.

Fully illustrated with detailed instructions, this quilt is easy to make and a great way to use traditional blocks in a contemporary setting. The smaller blocks add wonderful detail, while the use of the larger blocks make the quilt go together quickly.

The piecing in this quilt is easy enough for a beginner, and arranging the blocks in a pleasing manner is an enjoyable creative opportunity for any quilter. Definitely a quilt you can make over the weekend or in a couple evenings.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 47 x 47


  • 1 Yard focal fabric
  • 1/3 yard each of four colors to coodinate with focal fabric
