Oriental fabrics are beautiful, but I have very little in my stash simply because I had to stop at some point. Your quilt looks so fresh and pretty; I may just have to rethink my stash or sew faster so I will have room for orientals as well. (take over yet another room of our home?? Nah, I pretty much use the whole house as it is.) I don't see any blocks I would have rejected. You did a nice job of putting them together. If it helps, I change my mind all the time. It has been my experience that if you are working with only a few fabrics/colors, they need to go together and compliment each other. However, if you are working with many different fabrics and colors, you can incorporate most anything as long as you keep an eye out for balance or colors, scale and tone. Nice job! Now the really fun part--the quilting.
