    Do you like it better on black or white? I am leaning toward the black myself.

    This is for my Future Niece, who is due July 5th. (I thought this was a little "fireworky".) I am intending it to be a play mat so she will like to grab at all the flowers and the pinwheel. Her mamma is an artist so she will appreciate the color wheel effect of the flowers. (At least I hope so!)

    ETA- the tiny purple circle in the center is my 3-yr old. He said the green circle was the mommy circle and then put the purple one on and said, "This one Lukey". I thought it was cute and will leave it and tell my SIL the story.

    Black here.
    If you used the white, you'd have to put more color in around it somewhere.

    Looks like black it is! I had thought of getting some black with tiny white pindots on it, but I have the black (thrifted sheet) shown already, so I will stick with the cheap way!

    Oh, and thanks very much for the compliments! :0)
    It was really fun to pick out the fabrics for this one.

    Yep, Black, the flowers get lost on the White! Great idea for your new niece!

    As one of my girls told me, "Black won't show the dirt!" White for a baby is just so hard to keep clean. I like the look on the black also.

    Black - definitely. I think the pieces get a little lost on the white.

    Black! It is beautiful!
    I think the white robs the rich colors .... what about a tan?
    or black
