Default which one looks the best?

I was asked to make the quilt falling charms, in a blue color.. But as I have never made this quilt before decided to try making it with some pink scraps I had. This is just laid out on my bed to see how it would look,

Which do you think looks better, the one with some bright pink squares here and there or all light color pink squares?

Thank you

I like the "pop" of the bright pink bits! Nice use of fabrics.
Hey, I'm a 1941 also!

I also like the brights mixed in. Will be very pretty.

Stand away from it and squint your eyes. Then decide. I personally prefer without the bright pink.

I prefer it without the bright pink. To my eye, it seems as if there is not enough bright pink to balance it. There are too few, so it jumps out at you.

My vote would be the one with the bright pinks on it (the first one). I think it looks brighter and more pleasing.

I like the one with the bright pinks also, but think it could use a few more scattered about if you have any.
