Default Need help choosing back ground fabric ,Please

I started my Yorkie quilt, I originally had 5 prints that I bought but after laying it out. it just looked like I needed more, instead of buying more prints I decided to try printing some, I went to my friends site on FB and copied some pictures of her little Yorkis, (this is a surprise for her so didn't want to ask for photos of her little guy.) I had some June Tailor printable washable fabric sheets that I used. The pictures came out great, they are the little ones..

Now I am having a problem deciding which background to use. The one with the bones and colorfully was the fabric I bought for this project, but after seeing it laid out I was second guessing my decision, so I tried laying the photo out on some other fabric. I didn't know if the bone fabric was to busy and that's why I am trying solid fabric .. Which one do you think I should use? Thanks so much..

I know that after it is quilted the solid fabric will look different but I still am undecided, and need your help.. Please Thanks

I really like the solids. I agree with you that the print is too busy. What a darling quilt that's going to be!

I like the playful bones as the background. Also, I would like the head shot on the top line with the two smaller pictures and the other two big ones across the bottom. It just doesn't look balanced to me, like it is.

I like the first picture with the colorful bones and I also like that layout. I like the way the colors bring out the fairy wings and flowers in the pictures. Nice job.

I vote for the colorful bone fabric with the layout you have on it.

Oh no, I love the first one. seriously it gives it POP. neutrals are not always the answer. Your choice though.

I like the last choice. the pale solid washes out the pictures
