Quilt Class signup

Well, I did it. I have always wanted to quilt - even before I wanted to sew. There is just something so beautiful about a homemade quilt. Sooo while DD is off to camp this summer for the next 5 1/2 weeks, I decided to take a beginning quilt class. And make a quilt for DD (unless it turns out horrible then who knows). So, I dragged her to the quilt shop on Saturday to pick out fabrics. This is all new to me and I had to ask for a lot of assistance. We were told to pick one fabric first and then choose based on that fabric. The class is using the Turning 20 Again pattern and 12 fat quarters are needed. So, DD picked this...
1st pick
And then we found 7 more on our own. But we were lost on the last four. With some help from some very patient salespeople we went home with these...

and yes I know, there are 13. During the cutting process, DD found this one and the salesperson said it was a good idea to have an extra one just in case.

Anyway, now that I am home - I am not sure of these 2...

Any thoughts or suggestions?
