    Words are random letters put together. The alphabet is OCD. I wouldn't spend the time to cut all those little blocks apart and sew them back together! I MIGHT cut them in half from top to bottom, add what's necessary to even up the sides, add borders. Then I'd sandwich it & quilt around each square. A baby quilt doesn't call for rocket science.

    Thank you all for your advice and suggestions, I made a small quilt with a blue fleece backing - I will try to upload a picture!

    A bit blurry I'm afraid, but you get the idea!

I have 1 of these panels and that is what I will be doing with it.
    I agree. Kids find learning to basics of reading and writing confusing enough without changing the order on them. To maintain some semblance of sanity, I think I would enclose the letters with various sizes of colorful strips to bring them to a uniform size.
