Cranes In The Sky - 5 More Days

Good day,

As promised, here is the 2nd-half, 5 more days that Andy and I spent working, completing, and delivering our newest Cranes in the Sky quilt bedspread.

The 1st 5 days are summarized at our posting "A Break From Our Project - Sort Of".

Day 6 – Halleluiah, Part 4 has been completed. The top design is amazing.


We now move on to Part 5. Part 5 covers an area of 5,512 square inches and includes a 26” drop on the sides of the Twin-Size Cranes Quilt Bedspread.

Our design will include approximately 212 parallel lines.


Day 7 – Parallel lines, 1-inch apart, approximately 26” each, equals 212 lines of stitching.


We now realize the size of our Cranes Bedspread Quilt. The clean geometric design of 25 Cranes on the white Kona fabric is amazing.

Target for Day 8 is to complete and clean up all quilting. All-things-being-equal we should be able to attach the binding.

Day 8 – Guess what?

The quilting of our latest, the Cranes Quilt Bedspread has been completed.



Next steps, the binding, the creation of a label, and the once-over with a magnifying glass.

Andy and I have decided on the name of our new quilt bedspread, “Cranes in the Sky”.

Day 9 – You know the thrill you have when you can see the tape at the finish line? Well that’s how Andy and I are feeling right now.

All the quilting for our new Cranes in the Sky has been completed. The binding has been attached and hand sewn.


Next step is the label. and then the delivery.

Day 10 – Label completed and Attached.


Cranes in the Sky to be delivered today.

When Andy and I give our word, we really try to deliver.

Cranes in the Sky delivered on August 31, 2018.



Praise be that our Quilt fits the showcase bed. And overview of the plans for the Exhibition display is astounding.

Cranes in the Sky will be showcased at the Florida CraftArt “At Home with Craft” Exhibition, September 7 through October 27 in St. Petersburg, Florida.

A Break From Our Hope Project - Sort Of

Good Day

Andy and I have been invited to submit/create a twin-size Crane Quilt Bedspread.


Some members of Florida CraftArt has seen our Hope Project work and invited us to present a Crane Quilt Bedspread for their upcoming “At Home With Craft” exhibit.

The dates are September 7 – October 27 in St. Petersburg, Florida

Our new Cranes Quilt Bedspread will be placed on the bed in the Boudoir (Bedroom).

Yes, we only have 10 days, which started August 21, to design, create, construct, quilt, and deliver a twin-size Cranes Quilt Bedspread for the “At Home with Craft” exhibit.

The exhibit opens privately to sponsor RE/MAX METRO on September 6 and publicly on September 7.

Praise be that we just had 25 Cranes already made of which we were trying to figure out what type of Cranes Quilt we should design and make.

A duplicate set of 25 colored plus additional white Cranes have been, with Marijke van Welzen, created and exquisitely constructed in a Cranes Coat. The Cranes Coat will be on display with our Hope Project.

Day 1 – Design and layout completed. Center section of the Crane Quilt Bedspread top has been sewn.

Day 2 - As this is a bedspread quilt the size is approximately 94" wide by 106" long, it includes the over-the-side-of-the-bed drop.

The quilt sandwich has been prepared.


We have drafted our quilting design.

Using our Janome 6600, the first part of our quilting design is to outline all 25 colored 6-inch Cranes. The Cranes were created using Kimberly Einmo’s fabric Solid…ish.

Yes, each Crane block is composed of 17 pieces of fabric. The pieces were cut with Andy’s and Jim’s designed AccuQuilt cutter die.

Day 3 – The 1st part of our quilting, outlining the 25 Cranes has been completed.


Part 2 was to stitch in the ditch in the very long sashing strips. This will help to stabilize the 3 parts of the quilt sandwich.

Next, Part 3 is to pebble the entire length, approximately 106”, of each of the six sashing strips. (Alliteration not intended.)

Day 4 – All strips have been pebbled, that’s Part 3 of our quilting design.


We now have moved on to Part 4, the quilting of the 5 6-inch spaces between the pebbled strips. We are creating a geometric motif as a part of our quilting design. The approximate area is 3,180 square inches.

Part 5 covers an additional 5,512 square inches.

And yes, there is a continuous hum of our Janome.

Day 5 – Two of the 6” spaces/strips between the pebbled strips have been quilted. This has turned out of to be an arduous task while also a labor of love. The number of starts and stops, especially around each Crane is time consuming.


An approximate time frame to complete the two spaces/strips has been about 14 hours. Yes, we are using our Janome 6600 domestic machine.

Three more spaces/strips to complete. This is our target to complete the top of the Crane Quilt Bedspread.

Keep following our status as we begin Day 6.

Marijke and her husband just delivered the Coat.

Andy Brunhammer and I created the Crane blocks, sent them to Marijke in the Netherlands where she created this magnificent coat.

We are enthralled with her work.

It will be included as part of our “Hope – Cranes Project” presentation and display in early 2019.

Got to find a mannequin for the Cranes Coat's display.

Here are some additional preliminary images.



The first step for our Cranes Quilt 12.40, the outline quilting has begun. The quilting design has been drafted. Something different.


Each Crane block in Cranes Quilt is a 4-inch block.

This is the 6th quilt of the Orange Set.

Cranes Project Update - Cranes Spectrum Plus

Good Day,

All Cranes for the first color of our Cranes Spectrum have been constructed. The first color is Red.

All color fabrics will be Batik fabric, from Sew Batik in North Dakota. All their batiks are produced in Indonesia.


Andy and I are attempting to create 40 Crane Quilts to complete our Cranes Spectrum.

Each Cranes Quilt will be created with a singular shade based on the 3 Primary and the 3 Secondary colors. In other words, we’re attempting to compose at least 6 or 8 Cranes Quilts that will represent a shade of the 6 colors: Red; Orange; Yellow; Green; Blue; and Purple.

To date, we’ve cut and constructed 153 Crane blocks for the Red Cranes set. These Cranes will be incorporated into the first 6 Cranes Quilts. The first 6 are grouped under the Red.

Our intention is to create an individual and unique quilting pattern/design for each individual Cranes Quilt in the Cranes Spectrum. This is a challenge and should prove interesting.

And if you’re counting, apart from the 40 Crane Quilts in the Cranes Spectrum Andy and I have completed and almost completed the following Cranes Quilts:

1. Not A Partridge (30 Cranes)
2. The End of the Cold War (258 Cranes)
3. Sunrise (51 Cranes)
4. Rainbow Cranes (24 Cranes)
5. Cranes Symposium 25 Cranes, Kimberly Einmo's Solid-ish
6. Vivaldi’s Cranes (20 Cranes)
7. A Flock of Cranes (24 Cranes)
8. WOW! (top completed) (100 White Cranes) 

9. Monster Crane (design completed) (1 Crane)
Three other Cranes quilt pieces are being added to the collection created by Marijke van Welzen, the NetherlandsMadhu Mathur, Rajasthan; and Peg Green, Florida.

Origami Cranes - Our Obsession

Good Day,

I have been asked how the “improvisational process plays out in the creation” of Andy’s and my work, specifically for our Cranes Project.

Here goes.

Our Cranes Project has been some time in the making.

A couple of years ago a Facebook connection was making Cranes quilt blocks, and I learned that he was making 1,000 Crane Blocks. I asked him about his idea and why did he feel inclined to make the 1,000 Cranes.

I had read about the young Japanese Hiroshima victim, Sadako Sasaki  and her challenge to herself about attempting to fold 1,000 Origami Cranes. The tale spins in different directions whether she survived her goal before she passed away from complications attributed to the nuclear explosion and sickness.

I also found out that 1,000 Origami Cranes had/has become a complimentary touch and decoration for weddings.

There is also a turn that one is seeking health, or one is seeking a new love. You get the picture.

I asked my FB friend why he was making his Cranes and whether I could borrow his idea. He would not tell me his reason until he completed his 1,000th Crane. He also mentioned that there were many thoughts and ideas on the Internet regarding paper-piecing Origami Cranes. He mentioned that it wasn't his idea, that I should be able to easily create a paper-piecing design from the work found on the Internet.

I then asked Andy if he was willing to, between quilt projects, to possibly create Crane paper-pieced blocks from leftover scraps. I told him that I had an idea of designing and creating, once we reached 1,000 Cranes, a possible series of Cranes Quilt panels that we could donate to a children's hospital.

Andy agreed. I created a pattern.

Andy began creating paper-pieced Crane blocks. Each individual paper-pieced Crane block took him approximately 3 hours to make. I calculated that at the 3-hour rate it would take approximately 125 24-hour days to complete the task. (You get the picture.)


At the time we were asked by a friend of ours, Melissa Helms, to design a quilt for the 25th Anniversary for a children's cancer society. It just so happens that this friend owns a quilt store in Tampa, Keep Me in Stitches, and she is one of the original founders of the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. Also, at the time my son, Joel, who is a Banker with The Bank of Tampa was considering representing his bank with the cancer organization. It was kismet.

In my working and creating of the design of a new quilt, Hope Cures! (http://quiltsb.blogspot.com/2016/09/q145-hope-cures-new-quilt.html), Melissa introduced me to AccuQuilt. I designed a "flame" fabric die with AccuQuilt to be used as pieces to create the Foundation's sun logo.

Back to our Cranes.

When I saw that it was taking Andy 3 hours to create each individual Crane block, I put two and two together I designed a pattern to create a fabric die. I contacted AccuQuilt and worked with the associated designers to create a 6-inch and a 5-inch Crane.

The new Crane dies came. In our test run it took Andy about 30 minutes to create a Cranes block. Hurrah! Out went the paper-piecing.

I then came up with an idea about creating a series a Cranes quilts of various sizes to create an exhibition at a local church which has an auditorium in the shape of an octagon. We have done two combined shows there in the past few years. When I present my idea of a "circular" display of Cranes, displaying a spectrum of colors, the Curator and the Pastor of the church were thrilled with the idea. (Of course, I may have bitten of more than Andy or I could chew.

I contacted SewBatik, in North Dakota, and have been working with them at getting the correct batik colors to create the Cranes. Also our friend Kimberly Einmo has created a fabric line, Solid-ish! which we have incorporated into some of our Crane blocks and quilts. Apart from a current portfolio of  10 Cranes Quilts, I have also created 40 Cranes Quilt designs to be included in the Crane Spectrum.

But I didn't stop there. I then created a 3-inch and a 4-inch fabric AccuQuilt die. We now have 4 sizes of Crane die cutters - 3"; 4", 5", and 6". (I have approached AccuQuilt about my design, but they have not followed up, as yet, with me as to the possibility of creating an AccuQuilt line of Origami Cranes.)

While waiting for fabric delivery, I have created and designed a number of other Cranes Quilts, apart from the Cranes Rainbow Spectrum.

The UU of Clearwater has now set a showing venue of our Cranes Quilts portfolio for late 2018, early 2019. The total number of Cranes Quilts is now in the vicinity of 45+.

Also, a friend, Marijke van Welzen, of ours, who lives in The Netherlands asked if she could create a Cranes Quilt Coat. We sent several Cranes that we created with Kimberly Einmo's new fabric line, Solid-ish This will be included in our show. Another friend of ours Peg Green, from Sarasota, has also joined our Cranes group. And a third Madhu Mathur in India will join our small group. We cannot wait to see their compositions.

All our Cranes Quilts will be colored Cranes on a white background. We have also created one Cranes Quilt that is white-on-white, WOW! I have created a number of new Cranes Quilts, inspired by ideas, at times just placing Cranes on a table in front of me and letting them “flock together” in a manner that may be attributed to a piece of music or photograph or spark of an idea. Some have been inspired by the works of other artists whom I have always contacted in order to ensure that that they are okay with our thought process and designs, at time preliminary. I am overwhelmed at the positive "go-aheads" I have received. Our portfolio will now include plus 1,500 Cranes.

And now it takes Andy about 15 minutes to create a Cranes block.

Oh yeah, and my FB friend who was creating the 1,000 Cranes, actually gave his Cranes blocks away to people who have touched his life over the years.

And to Linda Syverson and Sherri Lynn Wood, thank you for getting me to jot down a few thoughts regarding our Cranes’ Project.
