This background had the right colors, but ultimately I felt it was too busy and also made the other fabrics seem a little dull.
This mottled teal made the other fabrics pop, and it will make a nice space to feature a quilting design.
This border fabric was a good match for the cornerstones color-wise, and I liked it's linearity, but I didn't realize until I cut a couple strips how plaid it looked. Plaid is fine, but not what I was going for here.
I ended up with a dense, dark ferny teal print. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to photograph very well and looks kind of blotchy.
