    Which do you like better? Two bl & wh minis!

    I posted one of these a few days ago, just the top. Now that one is hand quilted and bound, but I measured it badly, so it ended up too large for sending to AAQI. So, I did the same pattern over again. This time, I watched my points better, and used just 6 fabrics, rather than 8, trying to get a clearer, crisper look. I also machine quilted the second one -- for the crisper look again.

    What do you think?

    Both are nice, but I do prefer the greater contrast of the second one.

    Like them both, but if I had to choose, it would be the first one.

    Both are nice, but I prefer the second one which has more contrast.

    Both are pretty, but if I had to choose, it would be the one on the left in the first photo. :-)

    So fun to see these next to each other. I like the crispness of the second, but also like the border fabrics in the first. Either way they are wonderful!
