ufo KAL - Intense Rainbow Hexagon Blanket, II

I forgot to mention last time the name of the pattern I'm using - it's Motif #30, from Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs, by Edie Eckman. I've gotten a little over 20 more blocks attached to the blanket in the past week. Not quite as many as I wanted too, as I took a brief break to make my sister a requested pair of fingerless mitts, but I'm happy I did get over the 50 block mark.

I've decided to go ahead and make this baby blanket sized, and then make another (bigger) blanket for me, using a different pattern. One where the blocks are bigger, and the method in which they attach to one another isn't so obvious. I've been playing with patterns, and this is what I've come up with :

Now, this is where I could use some help. I'd really like to use some more Mini Mochi with this, for varying reasons, but can't decide which color to use. Anybody got any ideas? I don't plan on starting this/making it for the ufo kal - that's what the Intense Rainbow's for; I'm simply looking for opinions on color choices. =)

This looks great! I love the colors! What method are you using to join them? Can you show us a close-up?

actually, it all depends on what you are looking for. something more subdued? the fern or violet rainbow would be wonderful.

i am very partial to the neptune which has blues, teals, greens, and purples.

the strawberry lime has a wonderful transition that looks a tropical sunset.

the tapestry would be slightly muted compared to your intense.

i guess i wasn't very helpful, huh?

Sorry I'm not much help on the color choice. I think they'd all work up well. It'd be totally on your favorite colors.
