Default First blocks for the Memories of Japan quilt - are they ok??

Hi everyone. I'm a beginner to quilting and I've just completed two blocks for the 'Memories of Japan' oriental quilt but I'm not sure if they look ok? I've posted pics of some of the fabrics I will use, some of which have large prints. The big prints have to be fussy cut but I think the finished blocks don't quite look right, maybe it's just me because of the prints. Here's a pic of the pattern quilt so you know what the finished one looks like. The sashing I will use is the gold fabric in the pic at the end.



My blocks with two of the fabrics:

All advice greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. I was a bit hesitant to cut anymore blocks until I was sure the ones I had done were ok. I'll carry on and do some more and see how things go. Thank you again. x

Very nice. Thanks for showing the individual blocks. It's nice to see how a block is actually constucted.

Can't wait to see it finished.
