I'm getting a jump on tomorrow's rainbow scrappy challenge by working on the red swans/cranes today. Plus these blocks qualify for the HSTeria quilt along. Each month, I never quite remember how the crane is made, so I pull out one as a guide. I'm making four red cranes facing right and four red cranes facing left. I've selected all of the fabric and cut strips for all the cranes. But at this stage, I keep the confusion to a minimum by constructing only the cranes in the right facing formation with a yellow crane as our guide. When I am finished with these, I will move on to the ones in the left formation.
