"Amish Abstraction"

Hand quilting is not my thing and I'm not very good at it....... but look I finished quilting this quilt that is a 36 inch square!  I can't tell you how many hours I put into this quilt........geese and its so small!  In any event I now have to bind it and can't decide what color to use.  Black?  Lime? or turquoise?  What do You think?
This was made for an online challenge using the book "Amish Abstractions : Quilts from the collection of Faith and Stephen Brown".

The quilt looks good, I vote for black binding. Your hand quilting looks great and you should be proud of yourself.

Looks fantastic! None of that fabric was mine? And I vote for lime.

My gosh your hand quilting is so good! Great job. I vote for black binding as well. I think the lime green would be a bit too bright for Amish, but I'm not Amish so don't take my word for it.

That's so nice! I haven't hand-quilted in ages. I kind of miss it, too. I vote for turquoise.
