Default ecclectic baby quilt

ok i always make my co-workers baby quilts when theyre expecting and our IT guy's wife is pregnant i saw her the other day and decided to ask her what her colors were she wants something in hot pink and lime green zebra print
theres lots of hot pink sebra print out there but i cant seem to find anything in lime green zebra print except some fleece. i was thinking of making 4-patch squares and alternating them and adding a small border of each around the edge and possibly backing it with reg zebra print or possibly a plain hot pink blender since its a girl. ive got lots of time at this point but i have alot going on right now and would like to at least find the fabric and be ready to start shes due in late august. so anyone have a line on lime green zebra print im going to michigan tues will look for it there too. thanks for the help.

One possibility might be to find black and white zebra print and dye it.

Remember, you've got the main colors, that's what's important.

Here's one. http://www.quiltexpressions.com/cgi-...d=1#BEN0444949

Better yet, here are some coordinates! http://www.quiltexpressions.com/cgi-...d=1#BEN0444949

Also, you might consider using a green as an accent, blender or pull it together with pink and green dots or something like that.
