A solution!!! After my depressing post earlier (or yesterday, I've got no idea when this will show up), I packed up the kids and dragged them to my LQS. I found my favorite clerk and she led me to the PERFECT solution and immediate gratification.
I apologize for the bad picture, but there is my dresden, with the damask in the center and the new fabric on the outside. It's a lighter green with a densely packed white pokka dot. The green of the new fabric, picks up the green from the damask better than the brighter green of the other pokka dot, plus I walked out of the store with 2 yards. I'm spending my preschool time tomorrow, cutting and sewing circles. Wish me luck!
