    Teal would be my pick....may I suggest Grunge as it wouldn't be as flat looking as a solid color.

    I am always the Lone Ranger here LOL. But I make mostly scrap quilts so I am used to putting prints together in nontraditional ways. I would use cream newsprint for the background. Surprisingly it goes with everything. Well, that is except batiks.

    I thought a tiny Swiss dot would look cool, too. White with maybe yellow, coral, or aqua dots. Or a tonal dot print.

    With KF prints I suppose the unusual as normal. LOL! These prints are so pretty and pastel-y.

    I also like a dark gray as in the second picture. That way all your colors will stand out.

    I'll disagree about the newsprint suggestion. I think it would detract from your beautiful KF fabrics. I think a solid, or almost solid, would be better. The Grunge suggestion was a good one. I recently used Grunge in some 4-patches & was pleased with how they looked.

    I would want those fabrics and colors to pop and be the focal point, so I would go with a white or off white. Maybe even a white with a subtle yellow in it would look great - may a dot fabric.

    I love those fabrics and can't wait to see how your quilt turns out!
