    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!

    I like both, but the first has more sublte gradients, which I find interesting.

    I like them both, but if I had to choose I'd pick the 1st one. Love the border on that one best.

    I like the one with more contrast. From this photo, the first one I find too distracting. Your good work is kind of lost.

    I like the first one, mainly because the pattern seems to "flow" better. The second one is nice, but a bit too much contrast for my taste.

    Both are fabulous, but I would have to say the second one is my favorite.

    The one on the left - is that your #1. Contrast is much better, and I love, love black and white quilts.
    The one who dies with the most fabric wins.

    I like the first one best ... mainly because of the wider border, but also the contrast.

    Me too. Can't give a reason either. Appealed to me on first sight.
