A Tropical Medley Quilt
Original design
58" square
Completed 8/29/2013
 
I made this qult for newly retired co-worker and friend Judy O., who loves the tropics and frequently dresses in island wear. The word medley relates to the assortment of theme prints, as well as to Judy's musical talent as a singer. The island, ocean and music themed fabrics are from my stash.

Here is a close-up of the back of the quilt, which features a music themed fabric. I've used this fabric in several quilts that I've made for fellow musicians.
 
It's well-known in my office that I make quilts for most of the retiring co-workers. I managed to keep this quilt a surprise from Judy. She had hoped she would get a quilt, but didn't want to presume. I wish Judy a very happy retirement.
