    I really like the bright prints with a few bunny colored batiks added in. I'm afraid the blue in the bright prints will blend into your quilt and be lost. That is a really cute quilt.

    I like the top left - as EvelynJo said - if you are going to add flowers and butterflies, then you will get your bright colors there. FYI - when I was 5 I had a stuffed animal names Bunny Blue because indeed, he was blue!

    I like the real bunny colours because of the greater contrast. Other coloured bunnies would work too but I would choose darker tones. No matter it will be cute as can be

    I don't think the homespuns go with the base fabric as well. And though I prefer the lower left pile, the more natural colors would be good too. Plaid doesn't look like a bunny to me, but small florals are fine. Too bad you can't ask the mom - I like her to be happy when I make a baby quilt, and making what she likes lasts longer than a moment of surprise. Especially if it's a surprise she doesn't like. I made a bed quilt for a daughter years ago, and found out there is an element of it that she does not like, although she loves that I made it. If I'd asked her, it might still be upstairs instead of on a shelf in the basement. Lovely quilt, whatever you do with it.

    2 of the bunny colors are nice but I do not care for the darkest one. I personally think that with a bit of bright flowers or foliage will bring the natural color bunnies out and make them really pop however, if I wanted colored bunnies I would make them. All apples are not red if you get my meaning. When a child colors a bunny it is not always a bunny color.

    I personally think the browns would look best with the greens, then use all of the other fabrics for the flowers and butterflies. I love the base you did.

    I like the top left the best. Have you thought of using oranges, reds, yellows, and purples to offset the blues, yellows, and greens? That could really brighten it up also. Please let us know your final choice and I hope you post a picture of the finished quilt!

    I am with the others that like the brown and tan Batiks, but think value that is why we like them they are so much darker and stand out so then do your flowers and butterflies in other colors with values darker than your pieced back ground. You are on a roll that is going to be a beautiful quilt one that will be treasured for a long time I am sure.

    I agree...make the butterflies and flowers the major colors. Congrats...

    Love it so far! I think the homespuns will give a soft cuddly look. If you want brights....add some flowers, bugs and butterflies in bright colors. If you decide to do bright bunnies, I would choose something brighter than those shown. They look quite similar in color to the homespuns. {on my screen anyway}

    I say go with your gut - you know what you like, you know what your (DD? DIL?) likes ... maybe mix the homespuns and the brights ... with one chocolate bunny (without ears?) in the middle??
