    What should I do? I would like to add one more boarder. Should it be Red, green, navy, or should I go back to store & get more of the light blue?

    This quilt is for my nephew that came 6wks early! So I'm trying to keep it simple so I can get it finished.

    Please let me know what looks best.

    Craftybear- I love this!! Thanks!

    S.Adkins, I think any that you have will work just fine! I wouldn't buy a lighter blue, work with what you have :)

    I think the dark blue would be fine. There is dark blue in the fussy cut blocks. Personally, I think the red is too much. You could bind it in red! It's a really really cute quilt!

    Each border CAN be a different color, if you like, and will add even more bright colors to the quilt. Babies love the stimulation.
    And you don't have to go get more fabric!

    I like the dark blue the best, the red looks too much like
    Christmas.

    I like the dark blue and then use the red for the binding.
    It will be adorable whatever you decide!

    I agree with the dark blue sashing and red for binding.

    I would go with the red its a contrast complimentary color to the green. Congratulations on the new nephew.

    I totally agree with RatherBQuilting. The blue for another border and maybe red for binding. Or use the green again for binding. It is a very cute quilt.

    I would do a very thin red border, a wider dark blue border then bind with red!! Whatever you decide it will look great! Congratulations on your new nephew!! I did a similar baby quilt and did the thin red border like a loose flap ie. 1" folded and stitched down at the same time as the wider border. It just frames the main quilt like a picture. Hope this makes sense!!!

    I like this idea....different color on each side...including yellow. Nice and bright and colorful!
