Scrappy Kite Quilt

I love to use up scraps of fabric in quilts.  This one turned into a kite.  I used a wide velour rick-rack for the tail of the kite.  The quilt is machine pieced and quilted.  It measures 34 in X 46 in.

Here you can see some of the fabrics in closer detail.  Find the dogs, the steer, the hippo, and the girl with the pinwheel.
Here is the bottom of the kite.  You can better appreciate the tail with its bows.  See the football player and the pink rabbit?

That is absolutely and uniquely gorgeous! (I'm still at the "somebody else's pattern" stage...)

That is just cuter than a bug. Nice use of scraps.
