Animal Word Quilt -- Finished!

Updated 3/2017--  all links (except to my own posts) removed as many no longer active. 

It’s finished!
I recently gave it to the husband/wife team of veterinarians who have taken care of my dogs over the years. You can check them out at their website or Facebook page.
The quilt is machine pieced and quilted. It is 52.5 in X 62.5 in.
I love this
Still haven’t decided which word block I like the best. Sometimes I think it’s just certain letters like the “k” in monkey or the “a” in toucan or the “a” in gator
or the “E” in horse or the “b” in bear or the “d” and “o” in dog.
Or this “C” in cow which ended up sticking out into the border. I had to hand applique that portion down.
Here is the back.
