Swoon, so close

I picked up Swoon from the long arm quilter this morning.  All I need to do is bind it and it's done.  Of course binding a quilt this big is never as easy as it seems like it should be.  And I still need to decide which fabric I had picked for the binding.  Does anyone remember?  I don't.

To get these pictures I had to stand on the seat of the recliner, which kept trying to recline while I was taking pictures with the camera held above my head.  This is one BIG quilt.  Somewhere in the upload process the color got all washed out.  No idea what's up with that.
 I'm trying to show off the quilting here, but I can never get the right angle to show the stitching.
This is part of the back, but you can't see the quilting much better here.  It's a cool loopy swirl which we thought picked up on the loopy swirl print nicely.
