What color to bind?

My little quilt came out to a 36 inch square.  It is based on plate 60,  page 110 from "Amish Abstractions",
and I also took inspiration from Rene a fellow Amish get together member.
Well I am NOT a hand quilter but I finally got through with all I am going to quilt on this little jewel and now have to decide what color to use for the binding.  What do you think?  Black, a lime green from the center, or turquoise?   Thanks and Happy Sewing

It looks finished the way it is. I think something subtle or maybe turquoise for the binding or as a strip of piping next to a dark border. Your quilting looks great!

maybe black ? My first thought was turquoise, but there's already turquoise in the letters. So I'd probably choose black to have a connection with the inner stripes.
But I'm sure it will beautiful, whatever you decide
