Dresden Plate Quilt - Fabrics

I am going to make a Dresden plate quilt for someone special, but can't say who until after I give it to them!  I need to hurry and get it made.  I need help picking out the fabrics.  I have some turquoise and sage green fabric I want to use.
I really like this quilt I found on Pinterest, unfortunately the link is broken for me to give credit to the person who it belongs to.  If you know, please let me know!

My quilt will have some regular Dresden plates and some Dresden butterflies like this:

I have a lot of ideas on my Pinterest board!
Here are the main fabrics I will be starting with:

These big print fabrics will be my center, but I am not sure if I want both:

Here are some other fabrics I am thinking of adding, which ones do you think?
What do you think, one, two or three?  I was going to use the bottom layer in 3 for a dress, but am not sure if I should add it to the quilt.
Thank you for helping me to decide!

I've never seen Dresden butterflies before! I'm terrible at fabric selection so I'll leave that for the experts!

Dresden plates and butterflies are amazing!
