Little cranes

     Two of my quilting friends, twins, had a recent birthday. We went to high school together and reconnected after many years through quilting. They taught me to paper pieces. So, when I saw this free pattern, I knew it was for their birthday. It came in three sizes, 3", 6", 9". I made the three inch. It was a little dicey. I lost the pieces twice. Next time, I will painter's tape each piece to a wall so they don't get blown or buried. I think I would like to make the larger ones.
     Long ago, I made paper cranes with the elementary school I taught at to send to a school in NYC near the world trade towers in fall 2001. We made over 1000 of them and strung them on long strings to hang in their school.

Wow, 3"! I can believe you would be losing some of those tiny pieces.

Your cranes remind me of origami.

They turned out beautiful. Yes, they do remind me of folded paper birds. I am sure they will be cherished by the twins.
Thank you for your comment on my blog.
