"Thinking is the enemy of creativity. " Ray Bradbury
Both look good to me!
That stripe with the little flower has always been one of my favorite fabrics. I like the way it kind of lightens up the dark brown floral.
I agree with Debrah-- from the photo, it looks like either or both could work with the 9-patch. I also agree that the little flower stripe energizes the composition, while the tan colored fabric creates a more antique-looking, nostalgic look.
