14" X 14"
It was just a small 4" by 4" block, but Joan enlarged it to 9" by 9" and gave the giraffe some space to roam. The little quilt was a gift to our niece Jenny who had charitably "adopted" a giraffe at the zoo for her mother. There was joy in giving the giraffe to Jenny, and even the giraffe, limited by nature in its ability to talk, gave out a happy shout.
