To collectively make
1000 Paper Pieced Cranes to promote
and inspire hope in these unstable times in our history.


History and Desire of the Mission:

The tradition of making 1000 origami paper cranes comes
from the Japanese culture which says if you fold 1000 paper
cranes within a years time you would be granted
one wish or happiness and eternal good luck. The crane
is an auspicious creature in Japanese folklore
and is said to live 1000 years which is why 1000 is significant.
It has become common for groups of people to
join together to make the 1000 origami paper cranes in
order to spread awareness for different causes.

Our desire is that we as quilters will
come together to spread hope, linking hand in hand to make
1000 Paper Pieced Crane Quilt Blocks to turn into an amazing
quilt that will inspire people to stay strong
and hopeful in these perilous times.
