Crane Designs’ latest collection, Frozen in Time, was created by the urge for the warm months, planning new projects in the garden and building a garden cottage to store all the garden tools. While gazing out at the snow-covered garden, a flash of red caught my eye; a beautiful cardinal was perching on the fence covered in ivy and berries. Then a few chickadees flew in for some seeds at the bird feeder. I was so inspired by what was in front of me. I forgot the summer garden planning as I focused on the serenity and beauty of my winter garden and mused about how every season has its natural beauty.
This collection started with a wool applique project, also called Frozen in Time. We adapted this wool applique project into a fabric collection. This new collection is just brimming with an abundance of striking coordinates waiting to be-sewn into smart projects. These projects could range from wall hangings, quilts to kitchen coordinates. Imagine table runners or even a place-mat. We hope you are inspired to create a few beautiful quilted treasures from the Frozen in Time collection.
