Farm Girl Vintage Sampler is quilted!

I finished machine quilting Kennedy's quilt!
She doesn't know it's her quilt, I'm giving it to her for her 10th birthday, this month :)

I followed the gingham fabric, quilting along the gingham, every 3 stripes, back and forth, creating a crosshatch effect.

You can see on the mint green minky back :)
See the crosshatch design?
I outlined the starts in each corner.  

I followed Lori Kennedy's "simple flower" motif and free motion quilted the design in the center of each block.
I used the wavy stitch on my Bernina, to outline all the blocks.

I did a free motion reverse loop, on the second border, outside of the flowers.

One problem with machine quilting with my sewing machine, is that I can't get the fabric taut like you would be able to on a quilt frame or long arm machine.

I'm going to choose one of these 3 fabrics for the binding.
Can you help me choose which one to use?
Just tell me in the comment box below :)

I like this Sew Cherry yellow!

I think the pink is different, because it contrasts with the red, ever so slightly.

The blue would be pretty too :)

Thanks in advance, for helping me.
I'll post photos of the finished quilt next week!
