    Binding Fabric--Should I use the dark or the medium ?? Would like opinions

    I think it will look nice using the dark blue (from the sashing) fabric for the binding but I know a lot of quilters prefer to use the fabric that is used in the outer border. I have 3 choices here--the dark blue from sashing, the medium blue small print from the border or the medium blue large floral print from the backing. I like all three but think the dark would make a nice "framing" to it.

    This is only a portion of the quilt--it measures around 68x78.

    Thanks.

    I like the dark blue best.
    The large print second best.

    The dark blue looks perfect to me. It frames your top nicely and will match with the backing fabric.

    I like the border floral myself. I usually go for the dark, but something tells me the floral!

    I like the dark blue. Pulls everything together and makes a frame.

    I agree with SilverNeedle, the dark blue helps pull it all together

    The dark blue binding would create a lovely frame effect once it goes on.
