: Lois K. Ide (1920-2010) titled her hand quilted work Origami Cranes. Made in 1986, she designed the quilt in horizontal stripes of solid red, solid white, blue and white polka-dots, and screen printed birds. Appliquéd origami cranes of different sizes are scattered across the quilt. The crane, a symbol of peace in Japan, is one of the Japanese’s favorite subjects for the paper folding technique of origami. This piece measures 78cm x 78cm (31 inches x 31 inches). Lois was a native Ohioan and resident of Bucyrus, who began sewing at the early age of four. She learned appliqué and patchwork from her mother and embroidery from her aunt. After years of mastering her craft, she became a master quilter and an internationally known teacher with students worldwide. View on Ohio Memory.
