So big …not so easy to have a photo of the whole quilt

2 block are different from the original one.
I replaced the two blocks with series of animals .. 
by :
- the husband .. I share with Gaelle, my partner on this project,  this block,
- a block with cherries branch, because there is  a big cherry tree ,( that I am afraid is on its way to the end ..)

I am proud of reaching this first step of this project …finishing the top 
 the second step is for me much more difficult : quilting !
