Bower bird

So I'm reviewing my plan for the wool quilt prize, since I can't bring myself to make a brown quilt out of boring fabric. It will still be very brown and muted, with great flashes of that unique blue colour bower birds love.

I'm working off an embroidery I did a while ago, which was taken from a picture I took of the bower out the back of mum's old place. I'm happy with the shape and size, and believe it or not i think i'm almost ready to get started putting it together - I just need to work out some sort of frame which is big enough to take the panel!

Here's a dodgy pic of what I'm thinking so far:
