Some color experiments just don't work

The idea was to attach a small ceramic mezuzah cover to a small quilt so I could have a mezuzah for my office. It's not always possible to screw the mezuzah cover to the wall. 

I started out with a nice piece of fabric with some fancy stitches and fancy threads. Then I put the mezuzah cover on the fabric and YUCK! 

I'll try again using an off white fabric.

what if you layered one piece of, perhaps turquoise fabric, nice raw edges fraying a bit - just under the ceramic - to set it off from the fabric. I think there just isn't enough contrast between two very nice pieces.
