In a ritual of love and attraction, the Japanese red-crowned cranes perform an elegant and graceful dance to attract a mate. To see this dance is to be awe-struck by its ethereal beauty. Two Cranes, wings moving just enough to lift them off the ground in small jumps, dance together in an ancient ritual. Tsuru in Japanese, the crane symbolizes longevity and is a traditional subject of Japanese artists. The pattern and instructions offer options for the beginner/intermediate quilter, and suggestions to challenge the more advanced quilter as well. Designed for a raw edge appliqué, it can also be adapted to needle turn. Dancing Cranes quilt pattern by Mochi Mochi Fiber Arts, finished size is about 16" x 16".
