Need advice on what type of binding to use... dark blue, light blue or a cream. Thanks for the help.

I think the cream would really set it off!

Thanks that is what my mother in law said. I am new to quilting and still have a problem with color choices.

If you want the border to POP do it in a lighter color, but if you want it to blend in do it darker.. Not much help was I :roll: What color is the back ? I usually try to match the binding to the back..
Love the colors and the design :lol: :-) :lol:

First of all, gorgeous quilt you made! Kudos! Give yourself a pat, and all that stuff.

That being said, I would go with the darkest blue. I think it would frame the quilt nicely. Since the bindings get worn more, I think a light color would show dirt more. The dark blue will still set the quilt off nicely, but at least hide some of the dirt that is just going to happen with wear.
