Crustaceans - PATTERN

Crustaceans have some of the great designer shapes.  They all have ten legs and paired antennae and wear their skeletons on the outside. The Hermit Crabs come in designer colors like scarlet. Some of their legs are hidden in their shell.  You can really have some fun with the colors.  Lobsters come in bright orange and batik-y greens and browns and blues. Then to fill in some areas with more embellishment cut out some corals, and don't throw away the negative (the trash from the coral appliqués) parts of the fabric, I used them in the border.

In this pattern you will find instructions for raw edge and machine appliqué, how to make crazy quilt blocks, four different hand embroidery stitches to get you started, and two different ways to attach glass beads for embellishment. My finished quilt came out 39" wide by 29" high.  Yours could be larger or smaller depending on how large you make your crazy blocks. You could combine this pattern with other themes in our line like Tropical Fish, Designer Seashells, or Fish Gumbo.


There are additional color closeup photos in the PDF pattern.  The printed pattern cover photo is almost 8" x 10" it shows lots of detail.
