I like them all, I'm very fond of batiks. When I did "Stupendous Stitching I wanted all of the stitching to show well so I chose I lighter fabric than any of these. I suggest you go with the lightest, the gray.

Number 4 would show your couching and hand stitching the best in my oinion

Number 4 is my choice, and the fact that you dyed it yourself is a real plus: congratulations!

Option 4 has great potential for the use of many thread colours to compliment the colours in the fabric, you did a super job dying the fabric, Looking forward to seeing what you do.

lol I ended up using something totally different, the fabric just spoke to me when I was in Joanns.
