Coral Reef is Coming Along

Saturday a group of us from the Crochet Guild got together and started putting the reef together so we can have an idea of what we are doing for the Indiana State Museum.  Right now we have over 600 pieces of coral that has been made by people from all over the state.  Libraries are getting involved, girl scout troups, fiber groups and any crocheter who is willing to help.  We still need more but I think we will get enough. 

We covered baskets with batting and felt than added the crocheted coral pieces.  The result was so exciting!  I am amazed by the creativity of the people involved.  Besides the coral, we have crocheted fish, shells, sharks, anemones, jellyfish and lots more! 

This is such a small part of what the entire reef will be like!  Can't wait to see this amazing community creation when it is finished! 


  1. This exhibit is going to be so awesome! We can't wait!

  2. Wow, that is fantastic!! I wish I lived nearby, so I could see the exhibit in person!
