Quilt Top Finished

This is the finished quilt top. It came out a little wonky -- some of the fabrics I used were stretchy.
The story behind the quilt? There is one fabric here which is from a robe I bought on the occasion of my daughter Inbal's birth 35 years ago. The fabric is a white background with a black, brown and yellow design. I tried to choose fabrics which either matched in colour, or had an interesting texture. So the bright yellow and the white, black and yellow fabric are waffled, and the solid black is corduroy.
I have yet to figure out how to quilt it. I will machine quilt but what kind of a pattern, I don't know. Also, I think it's a little too big for a crib quilt and the colours would probably scare a baby, so it will be a lap quilt.
And I may yet cut the border into wavy shapes as well.
Any suggestions how to make a wonky quilt less wonky?
