This quilt appeared in Judy’s book Design Your Own Quilts
. Four of Judy’s friends agreed to help make background blocks, using solids in the Amish palette. They each made fifteen four-inch blocks in patterns of their choice. When those were complete, they raided Judy’s stash for a theme fabric that would tie the blocks together. A shortage of theme fabric forced the addition of the tropical-print strip across the top of the larger theme block; that fabric was also used to bind the quilt. Quilt was started 1/12/1988 and finished 7/2/1988.
