1000 Cranes

1000 Cranes - I made this quilt for my Mom the year she was undergoing treatment for Leukemia. With the help of about 30 (?) volunteers from the internet, we made 180 paper-pieced cranes. Using a backing fabric with origami crane images, and outline quilting all of the cranes on the front, there are over 1000. The legend of the 1000 paper cranes dates back to a young girl exposed to radiation after the nuclear bombing of Japan in WWII, and she came down w/ Leukemia, so I thought it was right for my mom. All of the prayers that went into the piecing worked, she is in full remission.
