    Great quilt! I usually pick a darker binding for children's quilts (yellow will get grungy fast). I think the dark pink would look good.

    Adorable! I'd go with a pretty deep yellow. It would brighten the quilt, but consider the consequences of maybe it getting dirty. (Unless you're okay with changing it in a couple of years.) Regardless, the quilt is just adorable!

    I would repeat the dark pink from the inner border as a binding. It might not get as grungy as yellow.

    Beautiful quilt! What stitch did you use on the sashing? And what type of batting? There's a nice puffiness to the sashings.

    I vote for the same dark pink in the skinny border to be used as the binding.

    I know Savannah will love this!

    Yellow is a fabulous choice not to mention Pink will also look grungy in time as well You have a lot of pink going on So yellow will accent very nicely
    Good Luck with your decision

    Happy Quilting

    Darling quilt. I agree that the deeper pink as in the narrowest border would be great. I think it will "stop the eye" and keep in inside the quilt.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    THe stitch is a wavy one built in my machine, the batting is from walmart mornig glory high loft, the sashing is made from a satin type fabric I had in my stash, and yes yous all are right, Yellow would look nice but dark would keep clean longer. Thanks for the replys.
