Owen's Queen Sized Quilt

I've been working on this quilt for Owen.  It's made from Civil War reproductions.  I participated in a charm square exchange and also raided the stashes of my mother-in-law and sister-in-law to come up with enough fabric to make a queen sized quilt.  

I'm wanting to add a couple of borders with Owen's full name spelled out in blocky, whimsical letters and perhaps the date along the other side.  I wanted something that was masculine and big enough for him to continue using into his adulthood.  This is the first "big boy" quilt that he will have.  Very excited to bet busy on finishing up his name so I can get this one off to the quilter's...
