As mentioned in previous posts here and here, this quilt was conceived to be a fund raiser for Zippy’s charity.  That charity is  Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation – MD

The Hawaiian Lobster quilt is 41 in X 41 in.  It is machine appliqued and machine quilted.  There is hand embroidery around the appliqued edges.  For more information on the quilt, please, check the previous posts mentioned above.  Here are pictures of the finished quilt.

This is a photo to show more of the detail.

Here is a photo of part of the back of the quilt.  It shows the quilting of the flowers and leaves along the border.
