Finished Quilt Top

I have a finished top for the Clover and Violet Stitch and Quilt Along.

I added a small white border just like the block have and then a 3 inch border. It's another It's a Hoot fabric. The only think I don't like is that now I have no idea what to bind it with.

I'd like to not buy anything else. I have lots of this blue and this green left. I also have a lot of the yellow circles. I also think I have enough scraps to make a scrappy binding, but I'm afraid that would be too much. What are your suggestions?

I didn't ever post a picture of the last block, but here it is. You can't see the work really well, but I love the way the flowers look up close.

Oh, it looks so great! I think any of the binding options you suggested would look great. Another would be to get a matching solid (but that would involve buying more fabric...but would only run you $4ish if you bought solid, especially if you can buy it locally!). Don't forget to share it in the linky too! :)

Congrats! It looks great! The binding could be done beautifully in many ways (it's really more about your personal preference). I tend to lean towards using a more subtle color and print for the binding with such a vibrant quilt. I also agree with Jennie that a solid would be fantastic, maybe even matching to the dark red on the border so that they flow together. I'm sure that whichever way you go, it'll be beautiful!
