    I can't pick a color for the binding, I'm leaning towards lime green. I don't have any of the fabric I used left these were all pieces I had that were less than a fat quarter or cut in 2 inch strips

    A red might be cool. It could pull out the red of the monkey's hat.

    A solid lime would work or the light color.
    What color is the backing?

    How about a stripe cut on the bias?

    Why don't you make a scrap binding of blue, green and red and really catch some attention.

    You could choose about any color since there are so many colors in this fun quilt! Lime green, orange, or that turquoise color. Pick out your favorite!! Nice job on the quilt!

    I love those prints and it's nice that you were able to use the scraps. You have lots of choices for your border.

    I like this idea, but if you don't have enough material then just with the lime green.

    Red would be my choice. There is just enough of it in the fabrics for a red binding to pull it forward.

    I was thinking red too. I think one of the darker colors, like red, would put a nice frame around the quilt. Red is in the monkey, the focus of the quilt. Cute quilt!!!

    I think that lime green would be nice. If you have any 2 inch pieces long enough for binding, you could make them work also. The flange binding on the QB that you sew on the back and flip to the front, using pieces under 2 in width.
