Merry Mayhem Modern Quilt Mystery Fabric

Below are the Merry Mayhem Mystery designer's choices for her quilt, left to right, A-G.
Using these as a guide I checked out my grey/black/neutrals in stash and found these candidates.
Then I went by Arizona Home fabrics today and found these four to add to the growing list of choices.
That grey pin dot is a beauty, I purchased the "end of bolt". Two yards of the grey streaky one, one yard of the little flowered and the "end of bolt" of that luscious cream.
Then I headed over to visit with my longarm friend Gale this afternoon as she was down from CO. to her house in Surprise for a few days, and we collaberated on a final selection.
So here is what I have decided on, left to right A-G same order as the Merry Mayhem at top of the page. The grey pin dot will become A, my background fabric, B and C, the creams, are those light narrowest strips,  and D and E will be the larger strips. F and G I believe are those darker cornerstons.
Below you see the final clue in this mystery -click here for the link. I am very excited to get going on this quilt- it seems like a very different departure for me into such modern lines and colors.
Perhaps I will yet become a thoroughly modern quilter-- but first I need to finish the other two mystery tops I have in progress!

I absolutely love the cream swirl (you describe as luscious cream). Could you please list the manufacturer and any other details?

That luscious cream fabric is called "Ramblings" by P&B textiles. Hope you can find it, try typing it into your search engine.
