Madagascar Quilt For My Baby...

I made this quilt this morning. It took 3 1/2 hours from start to finish. It is hard to see in the picture but the outside border is a leopard print. I wanted to make Josh a quilt that he could abuse. Right now he is using one that I would like to keep in relatively good shape for a long time. My mother inlaw made it. I want him to be able to pass it on. So this is the reason for this quilt. Something he can drag around the house and accidently get juice on. The middle is just two yards of fabric. So all I had to do was add the border and make it a blankie. LOL. Now my oldest son wants me to make him another one. He already has 2 I made him. It is a never ending battle if one has something the other one wants it too.
That is Josh in the picture and our cat Dash. They where very interested in what was going on.

Awww I like the Madagascar quilt. My daughter just watched that this morning as a matter of fact. I like this one 'cause it gives me some ideas as to what the heck to do with the fabric I've got downstairs for my daughter - two yards of Care Bear fabric, the same amount in light purple and blue to match...all flannel. I think I might work on that tonight. :)
