A Linen Quandry!

The Brit Bee '13 part 2 block I referred to yesterday was this one:

Brit Bee Block Feb13

This was the 2nd block I asked my lovely Brit bee-vers to make in February (it's a 2 block Bee), so that I could make a version of this for my bedroom wall:

As one of the blocks didn't make it back, I had to try and cobble another one together, with very little by way of leftovers.

I hope you can't notice which one it is!

The background linen here is natural Irish linen and isn't as dark in real life as it looks here. 

Anyway, my quandary is that I don't have enough natural linen to do the outside of the star as well as the pinwheel inside it.  So do I go with some darker, mocha Irish linen for the pinwheel (as shown above) or......

..... a paler natural Irish linen or.....

.... a solid cream (this is actually the wadding of my design board showing through, but you get the idea!).

At the moment I'm leaning towards the mocha.  What do you think?
