Which fabric?

Edit: For some reason my photos didn’t show when this post uploaded. This would have made it hard for you to give advice. How frustrating! I’m still interested in your opinion, even though it will probably be too late to influence me.

As I mentioned in my heritage open days post, I’m doing a heritage crafts workshop on vintage patchwork tomorrow. As its free I need to supply my own material, although I only need a smallish amount. My question is which material do I take? Are small patterns better than big?

These are the ones I’m considering taking. Which would you take?

1. White background with purple butterflies

2. White, with white spots (I only have a minute amount)

image

3. Black background with bright yellow / pink / purple flowers and butterflies

image

4. White background with big blue / pink / yellow flowers

image

5. White background with lots of colours of small hearts

image

6. Cream background and small blue and pink flowers

image

7. White background with big pink / blue / yellow flowers

image

8. White background with pink / purple small flowers

image

9. Plain pink

image

10. White with small pink dots

image

11. Pink gingham

image

12. Pink with white flowers on

image

13. Plain lilac

image

14. Plain white

I don’t have much of most of these fabrics, but I doubt I’ll need much of them.

At the moment I’ve packed all of it!
Which would you put together? I know I won’t use them all!

At the moment I’m thinking  2, 5, 6, 8, 9,10, 12 would work relatively well together. If I was going to use 5, i think I’d drop the hearts and the plain pink. Which would you use or take?
