I saw this kit in the Keepsake Quilting catalog. It was $99 bucks. Too much. But then they put it on sale for $79 and I'm thinking I might could do that. Then I got to looking at the kit and to start with the size was just way too big plus it had elements on it that I would leave off. So I decided mainly what I liked about it was the branches and the bird. So I hunted for a nice sky background and cut strips for branches and drew my own bird.
I'm going to send it off for fancy quilting. He'll get a button eye when he gets back from the quilter. I have a black button just the right size and I'll add a dot of white fingernail polish to it.
