I was looking for a fun summer patchwork project and decided to make my free Casey the Crab pattern up with some quilting cottons (the original sample is in fleece). I grew up in Maryland going to the Eastern Shore with my family every summer. We would always get Maryland crabs one night, usually at Ed’s in Dewey Beach, and it was an absolute highlight of summer for me.
For years I drank my morning coffee from a mug I bought on the boardwalk that said, “Don’t bother me. I’m crabby.” So perfect (especially because my name rhymes with crabby, not that anybody every calls me that in the morning…).
