Default Need help chosing a barn block from these 2 choices

[h=5]Going to make gingerbread barn block for quilt block exchange at our LQS. The pattern is from the Quilty Barn Along from the blog Bee in my Bonnet.

Which do you like better?

Yellow roof or Blue roof (ignore black line on yellow roof) -- (sorry no mix or match of other elements...it's based on how the blocks look now).

These are large 16 1/2 by 16 1/2 each.

The green background is just so the edges show up more, it's not part of the block.

I (well Dad wasn't) happy with the darkness of the "window" and the door didn't show up too well. So we tried again with the blue roof barn and made some color changes.


I will make 12 of them the same for our exchange. We "drew" months and I got December. I didn't want the standard Christmas theme so I thought the gingerbread would work for most anyone.

I like the blue roof, looks more like snow. Is it possible to find a tone on tone white with sparkles that look like newly fallen snow?

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

I like the blue roof. Cute pattern. (You are going to have half the votes for blue and half for yellow, you know....)
