E's Quilt (Step 1 and 2)

I have a really hard time with quilts...for several reasons, but mostly because I am indecisive. So the whole process of picking fabric and picking a design/layout of the quilt takes me awhile. Once I have those 2 steps down, the quilt goes pretty quickly for me, but getting to that point is the trick. I finally picked some fabric (Thanks Mom for helping me decide!), got it washed and cut out. Now on to the pattern.......I tried a few different ones and I think I like this one best...

(Sorry the lighting was weird.....)
What do you think? Does the striped fabric look ok with some going vertical and some horizontal? Do the 2 circle-ly fabrics look ok next to each other?

I also am putting a 6 or 7 inch border of the plainer looking pink fabric around the whole quilt. I will post more pictures once I get past step 2! :) Wish me luck! :)
