Back Ground color for Tie Quilt

I have gotten all the ties cut to several different sizes from 1.5" to 4.5".  UGH!  I hate cutting ties!  They move to easily being on the bias and silky.

I pulled out some pieces of stash fabric I have to get an idea on what color to use for the fabric that will go between the ties and along the sides.  Here are the pictures I took.

white background 

yellowish tan print

green

dark brown print

medium brown


dark blue
 Unfortunately, I didn't have any shade of grey to try out.  So please let me know which one you think will work best!  I'm leaning toward the last two colors.

Thanks for the help!

The brown print is interesting, but the ties kinda get lost in it. The blue is masculine and really makes the ties stand out. I don't care much for the lighter colors. My opinion...

I think the Blue is the best one. the ties really pop! Did you try a black?

I like the way the blue goes with the ties. Have you tried dark red?

I like the blue the best of these ones. Have you tried a red?

I agree with everyone else, not too fond of the light colors, blue seems to be the best. I am following your tie quilting with interest. I have a lot of my father's ties that I would like to do something with.

Blue for me as well!

I guess I'm the odd man out - I like the dark brown print - but the blue would be my second choice. The lighter colors just don't work at all.... IMHO!

I like the blue also. It looks so much like a guy wearing a blue shirt with a tie on. Very nice.

I agree with most everyone else. The dark blue! It really sets off the ties.
