Need help with edge finishing techniques

I have two art quilts I've just finished quilting, and I don't think I want to use traditional binding. I've seen some tutorials for facings, and may try them. What do you think?

The first is "A Glint of Spring". It has been embellished with embossed brass.

The second is "Earthworms".

How should I finish the edges?

I found your blog through our new Quilt University class. In the August/September issue of Quilting Arts magazine, Sarah Ann Smith introduced a sheer binding that I love. I think it would be great for your quilt - take a look. She also shows other bindings in that issue and the following one.

Love the colors in your quilt.
