Everyone who has seen this quilt wants one. Quilt Vine is located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Anything that has to do with the Blue Crab is very popular here. This kit is done in red/orange to represent a cooked crab. Traditionally when you eat crabs you would cover the table with newspaper, therefore the newsprint background. We also have it in blue to represent a live crab.
This quilt is very easy to make. The patches on the crab are raw edge applique and the edges will fray when washed. A Red/Orange Charm pack is supplied for the patches and the background fabric is a Newspaper Print from the line STORY by Carrie Bloomston for Windham Fabrics. This is great for a baby quilt or wall hanging.
This detailed easy-to-read-pattern includes pictures and a full-sized pattern of the crab.
Everything to make this quilt is included in the kit except the backing fabric and batting.
This is an original pattern by Quilt Vine. Please do not share, distribute, publish, etc. this pattern. Thank you!
