I think the granite doesn't work, I think a solid would be better. I think the "cards" should be the star -- although the colors are in the granite, it's a nice choice if you are going that route.

I think the contrast is great. It sets the blocks off! The colors complement each other!

I really like it. Your squares tell me you like different and bold. I think that is what your fabric is. Go for it!

My first thought was to put black sashing around the blocks to make them pop.

It's an Alexander Henry line called Folklorio. I think I got them from Fabricworm.com. There are several colorways, and I think they're all gorgeous.

As for your color scheme, ( background fabric ) I myself love it, however, you might do a narrow border around each block in a dark solid color.

I don't think the fabric you have displayed is waayy off but it is a different style. I would probably try a black background with tiny polkadots which would pick up the skeletons and make the cute whimsical squares stand out.
Go with your gut but try a few
Love the squares!

I know they're not right for everyone, but I think my bf will love them!

I think I like this fabric with those blocks. I didn't when I first looked at it, but I think it grew one me!

My 2 cents...LOVE both the blocks and the fabric, but not together. Sorry!

Please let us know what you decide.
