Made you smile...;-)
I grid quilted the animal squares, using the fabric lines as a guide, in addition to SID-ing the entire quilt to stabilize it w/clear mono-poly, and continued the mono-poly in each embroidered/appliqued animal block w/outline and McTavish quilting in those same blocks - as always, the mono-poly worked great. The outside cheddar borders were quilted with a gorgeous Rainbows thread called Golden Glory which quilted out beautifully, not one single thread break!:

And I think it came out quite well:

Both quilts are bound, labeled, boxed and ready to be shipped off. And now to finish up those Hurricane Sandy quilts...
