    Do these fabrics work together?

    I want to donate a block or two to Quilting for Boston. They've asked for blocks using blue, yellow, grey and white and this is what I have available. I don't trust my eye -- do these fabrics work? I was thinking of something similar to a log cabin block (adjusted because I don't have that many different fabrics) I was thinking the yellow in the middle with the greys and blues surrounding.

    It needs to be 12 inches tall; can be any width but probably I will make it square. I'm now thinking of a zig-zag block.

    If you have a dark brown I'd add that to the mix for more contrast.
