    Your hubby and son know what they are doing. It's a wonderful, colorful quilt. Quilts don't have to be complex to be beautiful. This one is heading toward beautiful AND fun!

    I am not sure what the pattern is called but I would line the same colors up diagonally(like lines of dark blue, lines of light blue etc), then from there i would make it go from light colors to dark colors haha I am not very good at explaining things haha, but either way this quilt is going to look awesome!

    Love them just as they are. Sashing would interupt the wonderful motion in the simple pattern.

    I loooooove it!

    EDIT: The randomness of what your guys are doing is great. The mixed lights and darks allow the eye to move over the quilt in a pleasent way.

    EDIT: Here is a sample of something similar and it shows how some quilts just work when they are random.

    No to any kind of sashing ... I like the layout just the way it is. Not sure if I would mix it up scrappy like you have it, or attempt to organize the colors in some fashion. Is the recipient an organized, planner type or is she more of a free spirit??
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I think you are all set. I'd just sew it up as it is.

    Do you mean sashing or border? It looks just beautiful the way it is, but you could put a border around it in on of those colors..............
