Flying kites on a winding day



I started this kite sometime last year. It just needed the binding hand sewn to the back and the tail added. I finished it up while watching the Super Bowl on Sunday.  I used a Moda Bakeshop pattern.  The pattern makes a small kite perfect for a baby's room. I think the next time I will cut the squares larger for a bigger kite. Maybe add an initial or a name  to personalize it. The binding was a bit tricky because of the bottom point but it worked out in the end.

This is finish #3 for me.
