I always match the binding to the back or the last border. But that's just my preference. The cream would look great too. I love the quilt. It's gorgeous.

You've made a beautiful quilt and you want people to see the quilt. A light binding will draw the eyes away from the center of the quilt. A darker binding will keep the eyes focused on the main part of the quilt.

Beautiful stars! I would go with dark blue, that way the focus stays to the center-you want those stars to be admired as they should

Your quilt is beautiful and I love the colors you used. I would use cream binding. Wow, you're almost finished! :lol:

Beautiful quilt. I hope I get to that point someday. I have been working on a top that I have been hand appliqued and I feel like it is awful looking at everyones work (you gotta start somewhere tho my grandmother always said as long as you keep sewing you get better with each stitch) I am still stitching.lol My cross stitch work is pretty awsome but still got a longgg way to go with this quilting. I do not know enough to suggest anything but your quilt looks GREAT :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I would go for a blending blue, even what you use for border. I think light binding would detract fromhe beauty of the inner quilt and your lovely work.
