Block 13 – Double Monkey Wrench aka Hole in the Barn Door

Finally, I have added another block to our set. This is one of my favorites and in a 12 inch block, the center square is the perfect place to showcase a beautiful fabric, embroidery, or photo transfer. The possibilities are endless: use the same fabric for the colored triangles and rectangles or use a different color for the triangles for a completely different look. It’s all about your choice of fabrics. Wouldn’t some Christmas embroidery be pretty in the center square?

In this block there are two colors of each piece except the center square. It’s a really fun, but easy block to make. Click on the quilt block picture below for an Adobe pdf file of the instructions.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
