It’s been two weeks since I started my 1000 crane quilt that I intend to finish in 2018. Don’t worry, I won’t be posting updates every two weeks, I probably will do quarterly updates. But I wanted to show off the new fussy cutting template I got!
Jen did a 52 Lasers post on fussy cutting and I immediately knew I would need one for these cranes. Having the template to line up where the embroidery will be on the hexagon makes it so much easier!
So the totals so far –
42/479 solid hexagons
29/1000 embroidered hexagons
As of right now I’m not stressing too much about the deadline. Some days I make 3, some I haven’t worked on them at all. So far I have been doing one solid and one embroidered hexagon out of the same fabric, but I haven’t repeated beyond that. I have some amazing people sending me red and aqua fabric scraps, but I still anticipate needing to do some repeats, and I’m ok with that.
I’ve been doing regular photo updates over on Instagram if you want to check those out!
