I started this quilt at the suggestion of my blog friend, Dr Theresa Chan (rural doctoring). The post on it’s origins can be read here. As I explained there, I enlarged the lobster pattern I found here and then “blended” it into the “Hoya” Hawaiian appliqué block. The Hoya block I found in a book I have called Hawaiian Quilting by Elizabeth Root. For the border, I again used the Hoya block and added the leaves from the Anthurium block for the center area of each border. The corners are the Angel’s Trumpet block. All three blocks can be found in the Elizabeth Root book.
The quilt top is now basted to the batting and backing. I used the “fusible” Warm and Natural batting.
Here is a close view of the lobster with his antennae.
