Leba ... ITA ... it's hard to compete with yellow and blue! However, you can both win .... mix and match the five fabrics you've started with and those alone would be a great combo. And you could find lots more fabrics to go with these if you want more of a scrappy look.

ITA with OKSGlad you really can't decide based on one block. Yes, as Chris said, the first looks more carnival-like than the 2nd, but it would tone down fast if not used in every block, and would add the zip and punch you need to keep some life to the quilt.

Have fun shopping ... and perhaps when you come home you'll have found a whole different sent of fabrics and will be making a 3rd A Dandy!
