Crochet - Sophie's Universe

On January 16, I posted a crocheted block called Sophie's Garden. Well, I discovered that Dedri Uys has expanded this block into Sophie's Universe. I joined a group on Facebook called Official CCC Social Group which, as of this morning, has more than 20,000 members. Dedri's blog is:

The Facebook group is a Crochet-Along and it's a step-by-step weekly tutorial for creating Sophie's Universe.

Look At What I Made
It is currently Step 8 of the crochet-along. Before I tell you what step I am on, let me say that I only discovered this group a few days ago. Now, I confess, I have not decided which colors I want to use. 

Do I want to use the bright colors I fell in love with when I first saw the block? This block is by the designer, Dedri Uys.

Sophie's Garden
This is one of the color choices I am considering. It is from Kristen Selleck of  http://kristenscrochet.blogspot.com/. I LOVE her color combinations!

Here is another option by Liz McPeake:

Both of these use some colors from the aqua-turquoise-teal group. Turquoise is my favorite color, but it does not really match my home's colors.

Finally, here is a Nordic-looking version by Patricia Anne Pierce:

I am so torn! I will have to raid my yarn stash to help me decide, but I think I am going to have to make more than one.

Which one would you make?

Enjoy!
