You could do a piano key border in the purple, greens, and white and then either bind it with a green or purple. Or you could just bind it with a scrappy binding using all the purples, greens, and white. Look forward to seeing what you wind up doing. I am sure your son will love it no matter what you do to finish it up - cause his Mom made it just for him.
    Ditto to this suggestion. Love the colors too and he will love it for sure. Happy Quilting.

    I would just cut it down the middle & sew the mostly white side to the green side. That way you would end up with the white & green long strips together in the middle of the quilt. That would make only one cut & one seam to sew together.

    I don't know how big you want the quilt, but with the way it's sewn, you could cut 5/8/10inch (your choice) wide strips and sash with purple. Kind of like the "Chinese Coin" quilts. I don't know what else they're called. That way you can arrange the strips however you want to balance the color and it would DEFINITELY look intentional. :)

    Maybe slice it into strips and add another stronger or darker purple. Sort of think of Ricky Timms convergence style.

    2nd idea is to use paintsticks and a stencil to help cover the light so that it doesn't dominate.

    This sounds neat too. Plus, this would add more fabric to it since so far it is small.

    I have some other things I'm working on now but wanted to get some ideas of what to do when I am ready to get going on this again.

    Thank you all for your ideas. They're great!

    I agree with Justwannaquilt's suggestion....that is if you do anythingat all. A friend at my LQS would say, "You meant it to be that way, right?"
