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


History and Desire of the Project:

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 will 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.
