The background stitch is Alternating Offset Mosaic Stripe. I stitched it in Fresh Pink Watercolours. This stitch is a great one to know, by offsetting the rows of Mosaic, the boxiness of the stitch is broken. If you alternate the direction of the Mosaics in each row, you emphasize the horizontal direction of the stitch, but not the individual Mosaics. If all the stitches are the same direction, each individual Mosaic is the focus.
