    Has anyone ever seen a pattern like this? I got the pictures from a site I can't remember, there wasn't a pattern, just pictures from a 2005 magazine from a quilt show in Canberra, Australia. My DD is an art teacher & each Christmas teaches her kids how to fold paper cranes & decorate a Christmas tree in their room at school. She also went to Japan a few years ago on an art teacher exchange trip. I would love to make her a quilt like this. I may have to attempt to make a pattern, but I don't know if I am up to it! Maybe some of our Australian quilters have seen the magazine. Sorry this is so long.

    Try googling "Origami Quilts". I know I've seen a pattern (paper pieced) but can't remember where. You could also google paper pieced quilts. If I find it I'll let you know-I do love the pattern.

    I've never seen that before! I used to teach my 4th grade students how to make paper cranes after I had read the book, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. They got addicted!! I had paper cranes hanging everywhere in my classroom!!! :lol:

    fantastic idea! good luck with it! you have a measurably more amount of patience that i do.
    - Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
    - I've lost my mind somewhere in the heap of quilting scraps and motherboards.

    You wanted to know where the pattern for the crane quilt was found. I found it on www.shiboridragon.com/quilt pattern It's Margaret rolfes Peace Quilt Pattern. The very same material is used as the one you are looking for. Hope that helps. Kenna
