Default Which color binding

Which color would look better for the binding, the coffee colored inner border or the same as the outer border ?

What a beauty! I usually like a high-contrast binding but I'm wondering if this gorgeous quilt is best with a subtle binding that matches the outer border? Love, Love, Love your fabrics here!

Its a beautiful quilt. Why don't you lay both pieces of fabric along one edge and then decide? Its always better when you can see exactly what you are asking and then make your decision.

I second this suggestion. Without seeing both, i think i would like the outer fabric better.

I agree with the outer border. It is a gorgeous quilt. I wouldn't change the look.ha. I love it. You have done beautifully.

Usually I go for contrast, but for this project and the width of the border, I'd go with the outer fabric.

Lovely top! Either fabric would look nice but for me, it would depend on which goes with the backing as well.
