I created the black and white border by cutting strips free-handed, sewing multiple strips together, then crosscutting them, again free-handed.
The animal prints are from a panel. I free-motion quilted the outlines of the drawings with dark thread, then used a loopy fill with light thread in the background. The animals are mostly unquilted, which makes them soft and puffy, especially after washing. (These photos are prior to washing.)
I added a row of wonky stars across the bottom...
... and I like a fabric that can tell me how it wants to be quilted (the scallops).
I originally had a different fabric in mind for the binding, but when I saw this Denyse Schmidt plaid next to the other fabrics, I knew it was a better choice.
Here's another shot showing the backing fabric:

This is my attempt to photograph the puffiness after washing. (It doesn't show as well as I'd like -- the lighting is too soft.)
I'm linking up with crazy mom quilts for Finish It Up Friday.
