    Fons and Porter has a bunnies in baskets pattern, same shape baskets(could be different colors), with bunnies in different positions(crawling in and out,etc). It's really cute!

    I would use browns for the bunnies so that they would contrast with all of the brights. They will get lost and blend into your beautiful base if everything is bright. I would use browns that are light enough that details on the bunnies would show up... eyes, noses, smiles.

    I normally love the brights, but for this I think I'd choose the homespuns!

    My vote is for the bunny-colored batiks, because they have the most contrast with the background. Your brights, on my monitor, look like the same values as the homespuns, and blend too much with the background. I'd prefer brighter, like the jewel tones mentioned, for butterflies, and perhaps use the homespuns for the flowers?

    I like the ones on the right side. You could use the brighter colors to intersperse as butterflies or flowers. The basic quilt itself is beautiful. Just my opinion.

    If I had to choose for these three options, I would go with the browns. Have you considered using some of the really saturated bright batiks in purple, orange, red, blue, green?

    I like the contrast of the darker colors. Traditional bunny colors.

    I'm with EvelynJ - If you do the bunnies in the bunny colors and the flowers/butterflies in the brights I think the balance would be perfect.

    Mix it up with some of each. There are colors in each pile that would go good for bunnies, brights and all. I can see some cute bunnies in the homespun that would go with the brights and bunny colors. Enjoy putting it together.

    I would go with the brown bunnies and then use your brights for the butterflies.

    IMHO, mom-to-be wants bright, so I'd go with your bright colors. I think it's going to be adorable. Thanks for sharing.
