I think I'd use the dark blue for the binding.

And the quilt is just beautiful!!!

I would choose dark blue for the binding, as that makes the entire border a frame for the rest of the quilt. Also, binding takes more of a beating than the rest of the quilt, and a dark binding won't show dirt as easily either short-term or long-term.

I would go with the dark blue for the same reasons MissTreated and Prism99 posted.

Beatiful quilt!

That is one beautiful quilt!!! I like the darker blue or matching the outside border. Great work.

Beautiful quilt. My vote is for a dark blue. Personally I don't like to go too light on the binding cause it seems that the binding gets dirty faster and would show the dirt more.
