Christmas Runner number 1

I have started a series of Christmas table runners using a simple pattern I had shown you on one of the pet quilt donations here. The fabric I have for these all have some gold and I must confess - these are going to be hard to give away, the fabric is just beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. I got the fabric at the first retreat I went to, it is probably a season or several old now. On the shelvage of one, it said it was from The Classic Christmas series - no designer was labelled.
Here is one set of the stripes

I am not sure as to what to use for the binding. I want to use the dark fabric that really pops out at you in the pictures, but I am short about 1/2 an inch in width. I may try making my binding just a little skinnier. Not sure, but you know I will post it soon!
Happy sewing everyone.
