Default Help Please. Do you think there is enough contrast?

I am starting a labyrinth walk quilt and am just not sure about the fabrics.

I thought there was enough contrast but can't decide if it will be OK or not as it grows. Here is the 1st set of blocks.

Any thoughts out there?

Wow. I have just started and used purple shades between black and white and contrast was my problem as well.
They look great.

The pattern was in Quilt Magazine designed by Chris Florence & Emily Sirkin. I'm not sure what month my SIL sent it to me because she knew i wanted to do one of these. So far I can't believe how simple it has been (be sure to label pieces as you cut) I am excited can't wait to get it done but I have some other projects going that have to get done so I am working on it in between. I'll post pictures as I go.
