Many rows of squares; alternating between solid white and squares with a blue patterned "monkey-wrench" design. Blue patterned band around the border. Quilted pattern on top only, the rest is not quilted. The Monkey Wrench is one of many four-patch variations, here pieced with navy blue cotton in an unfinished quilt top.
