Completion of a Rainbow BOM--I think!

 Finally had an hour or two to get the borders on Jack in the Box.  The pattern for the blocks (and bonus pinwheels) was in Quiltmaker's January/February 2011 issue.  I have been working on this quilt for two years as the Rainbow BOM and I am happy to finally have it ready for my longarmer!  I think this will find its way to my newest nephew Colton.  My mom watches him about two days a week at her house and has a little air mattress set up for him in her office, she currently has her own quilt on it but I think Colton wants something a little less purple!  So this bright fun quilt is about the right size and will give him plenty to look at between winks!


I am debating if I should add one more border to the outside--maybe the same fabric I used on the inner border (hard to see here but it has flecks of red, blue and yellow and some tiny black dots.  Any advice?

I like it "as is.". Beautiful, bright quilt! What a lucky boy Colton is.

This quilt is so awesome. I love it just the way it is. It was worth all th hard work for two years. I just might have to look for my Quiltmaker magazine for the pattern. Thanks for sharing and some inspiration.

I agree...leave it as is and add a darker binding to hold everything in. It looks great!

It is beautiful -- perfect just like it is. Stay stitch the edges to keep them from unravelling and then add a nice bright blue binding. What a great quilt! I love it.

I agree with the others - it looks perfect to me, just as it is!!! Congrats on a great finish - it's been fun watching each block come to life :*)

I too like it as is; however, I'd use the fabric you mentioned for the binding.
