Sally Lightfoot Crab
art quilt by Barbara Barrick McKie

36.5" w. x 26.25" h.
Sally Lightfoot crabs were seen crawling all over the lava rocks in the Galapagos on our trip there. I photographed one and printed the image to polyester fabric, then, using 2-4 layers of wool batting created a trapunto treatment, and then free-motion quilted the background, and enhanced the outlines of the crab.
