this, or this, or this?

I'm playing around with various fabrics to use for setting triangles around the diamonds.

This doesn't show up well, but it's a pale purple batik with little marks
This is gray with white dots
This is a black floral on white

I was looking for something that would fade into the background a bit and blend with a few of the other fabrics... opinions?

It's hard to tell from the photos, but the one that seems to fade away the most is the first one (pale purple batik). Have you thought of whacking the edges to make them straight and not putting any setting triangles? Or maybe using the fabric as a border on stright sides rather than as setting triangles? So many options!! Have fun choosing.

I'd go for the scrappy look, and select 5 or 6 so it matches the diamonds. JMHO-

I like the first one if you want it to fade.

Personally, I like the dots, Julie, but then, I'm a sucker for dots!

I like the floral...but I'm sure whatever you choose will be best.
