    The green. I think the orange clashes with the purple print it would be next to.

    Either would look great, but my favorite is the green.

    I like the orange..to me it really brings out the colors

    When I have enough leftover, I use the same as the last border. Your quilt your choice.

    Why not use various strips pieced together. I think it would look great multi colored

    I like the orange, and I LOVE the variegated quilting thread! The colors in the whole quilt are just fantastic! :)

    Oh that quilt is just too cute! For the binding...honestly it'd come down to a coin toss for me. Either one would look great!

    The back is a darker green, which would do fine with either color. Purple, green and orange are all secondary colors and therefore play well with each other. I was sort of tending toward the orange because I thought it made it "pop". Stringing some of the colors together is a good idea, too, and I hadn't thought of that. Think I'll sleep on it and look at it again in the morning with brighter eyes and more energy! This is a panel that I had seen on this sight and thought, WOW! Ethan would love all the colors and the dinosaurs were so cute! I did the over-all panto because we are flying to see them and the new baby on Aug. 16, and I need to get both done before I go. I'll post a picture of it with the binding when it is done.

    This group is fantastic! Can't believe I can get 3 pages of opinions in a couple of hours! Thanks so much!

    the orange looks better to me but I also like cdarts2's idea and using more than one color. I've done that on one quilt, partially because I didn't have enough but also because I like it. It makes the quilt look different as I don't see it that much on quilts for some reason

    I like the quilt. I think any of your choices would be good for the binding. I would probably go with the green or a plain black.

    I like my binding to be the same as the outer border. I don't want the eye to go to the binding.
