When I started the 1000 crane quilt, I knew I needed to set a goal so that I would finish it, but I also knew that I needed to give myself plenty of time. I settled on making it a 10 year anniversary project, which gives me a deadline of July 5, 2018.
Here I am 3 months in, and I have 10% of the cranes embroidered. 100 feels like a big milestone, but it also feels like there is so much to still go. I was having breakfast with Mollie from Wild Olive and she put it in the perspective of having 10% finished. That seems much more impressive, it really is quite a dent. Especially considering that I haven’t really been super strict about working on them. Since I have so much time, I’m just making this a portable project for right now.
I got this drawstring bag from Stitch Supply Co., she sends out fabric orders in them. It’s great for a project bag, I keep a stack of fabric squares ready to be embroidered. It’s the perfect project to work on in the car.
So the totals are –
105/479 solid hexagons
100/1000 embroidered hexagons
