    Peace Quilt by Margaret Rolfe

    Here's a little quilt - 19 x 25" - that I made for a friend who's retiring. She's an English teacher, for years she's had her students make origami cranes as part of teaching the book Hiroshima. The pattern is Peace Quilt by Margaret Rolfe. I used some sashiko yardage and Kaffe Fassett scraps. The original patttern uses oriental batik scraps - beautiful. It is paper pieced.

    Wow, I love the origami cranes in bright colours. I have seen Margaret Rolfe's Peaceful Cranes quilt done in asian fabrics and I have the pattern to do...maybe I should dig it out and use it now
