Monkey Wrench, Old UFO

These 9 blocks were string pieced on paper (phone books) about 8 years ago, and while I loved them, they never seemed to magically transform themselves into a quilt.  Yesterday in a fit of frustration, I made them into this little quilt, mostly from "stuff" that was piled on my cutting table.  Oh dear, why do we procrastinate?  It turned out pretty cute!  The corners of the 9 Monkey Wrench blocks made the secondary pattern of pale Monkey Wrenches.

Turned out very cute, Elaine.
I ask myself that procrastination question ALL the time! : )

Again, you encourage me -- this time with my bad habit of putting things off and then complaining I will not live long enough. Stuff those wasted minutes into 'get at it' and I just might!
