    I really like this quilt..it is very dramatic. In picture #2 there is a fabric in the pinwheel at the left top that is black background with white lines thru it. I think that would a great binding. It has the colors of almost all of the other fabrics and it also has black. It would also have yellow in it.
    Can't wait to see what you chose. Keep us posted.
    Peace and blessings,

    I try to do a dark binding most of the time because it hides the dirt better. For some reason the edge gets dirtier faster than the quilt. The yellow would be pretty too or the black with design as someone mentioned already. I bet you only had a scrap of it to put in your quilt? I love scrap quilts and yours is really nice!

    I'd go black ... there's enough happening in the quilt, that you dont' need a coloured binding as it would take your eyes away from the rest of the quilt.

    To make it pop...yellow. To make the quilt pop and stand out more...black. :) Beautiful quilt!

    I agree with the comment about the binding getting dirty quicker so would go with the black. My first impulse was yellow, though. A scrappy binding would also look good on this.

    I like the quilting. It reminds me of Charismah's style.

    Very pretty quilt. If it were mine, I'd bind in black.

    I think a scrappy binding with touches of black would be perfect IMHO
