    Here is my version of "9-patch Pizzaz" by Judy Sisneros. The patterns calls for several solid blocks in addition to the blocks from focus fabric. This is shown in the 1st pic. I took out the solid blocks and replaced them with more focus fabric or more 9-patch. Which one do you like better?

    I like the second one better , without the solid blocks. Either way it will be a pretty quilt.

    I like the solid blocks. It helps the eye move over the quilt.

    I like the second - probably because your prints are reading as almost solids at a distance. If the design was closer together, the solids would be a must to keep the pattern moving.

    Good job!
