Blogger's Choice Bundle Dilemma

Ok, so I entered some fabric choices for the Blogger's choice bundle contest at Quokka Quilts. This seemed right up my alley. I love fabrics and I want to become a quilter (hopefully soon--I just need to build up my nerve.) Anyway, I've entered this bundle which I narrowed down from 300+ of my favorite fabrics found in the Fat Quarter Shop. I thought I was in love with this finalized "bundle." Apparently, I missed some fabrics at FQS because I recently found some more that I really like. I was hoping if anyone stopped by they could weigh in...

Right now I've only switched out one fabric. The 4th fabric on the top-right. Should I make a change to the bundle? Or are there any fabric in this bundle that sticks out like a sore thumb? Which do you like better? Here's the original bundle (top) and new bundle (bottom):

Here are 2 mock blocks for the updated bundle just so I could get an idea of them in the same quilt:

  1. These are some really pretty fabrics. My suggestion is that you might need one or two more "lights"...with the grouping, they feel to me like mostly medium values. In both collections the top right one... is a pretty good light. But, then, again it kind of matters how much is used in relation to size of block, etc.

    GREAT fabrics!
