polar bears and alligators

So the Science Museum of Va is opening up a new exhibit today. We are so excited about it, Arctic Adventure is what it is called. I saw this fabric at the quilt shop and knew my son would love a pillowcase with polar bears on it especially after going to the Arctic Adventures exhibit.
And remember my Boy's Story Quilt? The top was finished ,but I decided to add an alligator to the mote outside the castle.
Here is the bad boy floating in the mote. Does he look like he is floating on top on the water? I may need to add a little black line underneath him so it looks like her it popping out of the water.

I have also decided to have this quilt longarm quilted. I just don't think I can do it justice quilting is on my own. It is such a cute quilt.
