Our challenge for this coming year will be to take the traditional Mon­key Wrench pattern (also known as the Churn Dash) and use your imagi­nation.

  • Each entry must include at least one mon­key wrench block.
  • The block may be pieced or appliquéd.
  • It may be in the foreground or background.
  • It may be a tiny little element of the quilt or the whole quilt.
  • You may twist it, distort it, elongate, curve it, or completely change the proportions or con­trast of the traditional elements.

You are only limited by your imagi­nation and the following rules.

  1. The quilt must be three layers and be quilted by machine or hand.
  2. The quilt may be any shape (square, rectangular, triangular, circular, etc.), but must not exceed 120 inches in circumference.
  3. The quilt must contain at least one monkey wrench block, traditional or distorted in any way you wish, but the minimum 17 components of the monkey wrench block (the four corner half square triangle squares, center square, and the side squares made of two bars) must be present even though their shapes and proportions may be altered.
  4. Only one entry per member.
  5. A four inch hanging sleeve must be attached to the back, and an identifying label that includes the maker's name, date of completion, and title.
  6. All entries must be submitted by the April meeting in a labeled pil­lowcase with the entry form.
  7. The label on the quilt must be covered.
