Finishing the binding for Red Planets

I fiddled around with the binding a bit to get the miter to look right and wrapped the binding around to the back, where it is fused in place.  I stitched in the ditch to anchor it.  This technique would never fly in a quilt show.  I wonder if I will someday regret doing the binding this way?  For now - it seems like a great solution!  Quick and it looks great.  I am happy with this piece and am wondering if this is a direction I can go with the deconstructed screen prints I have.....I really would like to build a series with them, but have been somewhat stymied in all my efforts.  Tomorrow, I will show the finished piece!
