A friend from an online game and I decided to do a craft swap before Christmas. She’s a very clever beader and made me three truly fabulous bracelets.
In return, I am making her a wall hanging using my Paper Crane pattern. I hope she likes it!
I re-sized the pattern from the original 12″ finished block down to 8″ finished, which was more manageable (and meant I could fit more of the pieces onto one page of printer paper). Then I picked out my fabrics and set to! After some humming and hawing, I ended up with four pairs of fabrics I liked, and decided to make four cranes. The set-in triangles are fabric I originally bought to make box bags with, but the slightly oriental feel and the colours went so well that I couldn’t resist using it for this project!
Then a house move/Christmas/New Year/work happened and I didn’t manage to make much more progress until the last couple of weeks, when this project has leapt forward again.
I’m now busy quilting it and hope to be able to send it off to its new home in Kentucky very soon! 🙂
Linking up with Monday Making!
