WIP - What should I bind with?

I need your help! This has been a WIP for almost a year now and my recent roadblock has been making a decision on binding.
Here are 3 options I pulled together: I could add some purple to the quilt, use this silvery grey which is already in the HSTs, or a subtle white print to edge the whole thing. I've also seen that striped binding is trending, my aunt introduced me to flange binding, or I could do a scrappy binding with my leftovers! There are so many great options and almost too much inspiration out there.
Thanks for you help :)

I’m leaning towards the dark blue.
It might look great if you piece together some of the fabrics from the quilt to form a scrappy binding. I think throwing in some of that purple for bling would also be fabulous!
Seems like one of your blacks might be a good option, also.
I would use the cadet blue, as on the back; has a grayish tint that compliments the gray
The quilt is very pretty and very busy. I would use the less intrusive. Probably the silver or maybe the black to frame it.
#1 it’s nice contrast and ends the quilt
I like the middle best
its beautiful! Nice job!
I'd use the middle one. Seems to go with the color scheme
I am always a fan of gray, but that would really set off your quilt very well
Grey will give it a great look and not take away from all your hard work in the piecing. Love both sides of your quilt.
I went with the dark blue I had which is really more of a blue/purple chambray. I'm so happy to have finished. Thanks everyone for the help!

Dark blue
I really appreciate everyone's support and input! I dug through my other fabric hiding spots and found some blues and another grey. I am liking the darker blue but also may need to acquire a dark grey to finish off and ground this quilt. Let me know your thoughts!

Maybe a dark batik with thes colors in pattern.
Beautiful quilt--love your exact quilted squares! I would use solid charcoal or black as binding. First choice would be the charcoal or dark gray. Great job!
I like the solid deep blue as a backing color.
Black would frame this quilt nicely.
I too vote for a dark gray, even if you have to buy more.
Silver gray...definitely
