I want to make a quilt that has 1 background, 1 accent, and novelties. In theory the background would be a non-directional tone on tone...

I apparently do not have "big" pieces of fabric... (or they are not tone on tone)

Do you think a mono-chromatic scrappy background would work?

I want this to be a gift, so I don't want, "What was she thinking?" or "One background would have been so much better."

I want one for myself too - should I try out the scrappy background on myself to see how it works or not?

Yes, monochromatic scrappy is always better than one fabric! My 'Poetry in Motion' background is on the verge of monochromatic. Go for it!

I always prefer scrappy with many background fabrics. I think it gives the quilt more visual interest. Plus, it's great for stashbusting!
