    Thanks for all the help with the baby quilt binding! However, I just finished the dinosaur quilt for the 2 yr old and I had thought I would just use the fabric from the black with colored dots from the first border or the light green from the second border for the binding. So I previewed: No to the black with dots, but the green looked OK....then I noticed an orange, so I previewed that and I looked and looked......OK, I'll let you look...3 pics.

    I like the quilt. I also like the green better than the orange, in my humble opinion.

    I think orange for binding as you already have the green inner border. Beautiful quilt!
