    I was wanting to say the same thing and thought everyone would think I was nuts. I like the way the yellow shows up all through the quilt here and there. It would make the quilt less predictable and give it some zing...or better yet, do a magic binding...there was a post here, where you put the yellow with the dark blue and use one for the tiny flange and major bind with the one not used.

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.
    My vote is the dark

    Dark blue! Either one would do but the dark blue frames and ends your quilt. JMHO

    The large print second best.
    Agree! Nice fabric choices---all go very nicely with the back and border prints, by the way!

    I prefer the dark blue, but dark pink would do nicely. My quilty mentor used to say that the binding is your last chance to make a quilt statement so don't skip over it.
