Oriental Cranes

Oriental Cranes was completed earlier this week and I am happy with the finished quilt. The quilt top was pieced in 2011 and has patiently waited for 9 years to be quilted.

It is a bit difficult to see, but the panto-graph Sensu that I used is a clam shell with a flower – lotus blossom?- inside. To me it has an Oriental feel, so I will probably use it on other Oriental quilt tops.

I also machine quilted with the same medium gray thread that I used on Shortline. It does a great job of blending in with all the fabric colors.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend,

    I used that pattern on an Asian quilt for a DIL, probably around 2011, too. Great way to showcase a lovely panel.
