Where the Wild Cranes Are

A playground to show case (Instagram) @where_the_wild_cranes_are. I am in the midst of making 1000 paper (pieced) crane mini quilts, to be left in the world for unsuspecting folks to find.

With the help of a team of volunteers ( first round… @Magpie, @renstar, @Reinikka, @antbee, @PrincessP) these guys will go global.

Now. I gotta get back to sewing on tags so I can do my next mail out.

Edited to add. This is the card that is in the package. Both sides.

I’ve been enjoying watching these go by on instagram.

Did you make the pattern you’re working from?

Nope. It was first introduced to me a long time ago on a craft site far far away. As a swap block.

I’ve just decided to take it all the way too far!:grin:

These squares are amazing! How long does it take you to make one? You are so generous to share these with strangers. :hearts:

Just under an hour each. But I’ve started factory lining the various stages til I have 20 or so ready to do a day or basting and quilting and binding

Wow! I would have guessed 10 hours each square. I have no idea how to do these. Maybe I should learn. Because I (seriously, really do not) need another new craft. :grin: gorgeous work.
