    I made this same quilt twice. I hand stitched both of them and used different fabric for each. It is amazing how fabric can change the look of a quilt. I keep changing my mind on which I like better!!!

    They came out so differently. Thanks for sharing.

    I like the top best, but the second is more uncommon.

    Oh I can't choose either.

    They are both beautiful ! It also reminds me of when I first started quilting if I saw a picture of a quilt in a magazine and I didn't like the fabrics I didn't even pay attention to the pattern. Time has tought me to look outside the box.

    They are both great. I like the circle quilting on the second one.

    I like the circles, too. It would make a great baby boy quilt.

    That is a good analogy of the two quilts. They are so different.

    It is so interesting to see the difference of the 2 quilts. How in the world did you get your circles quilted so evenly on the second quilt. Great job on both. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm always amazed at the difference fabric/color can make.
    I'm finally learning (after 15 years) to look at the pattern
    and not the colors!

    Gorgeous quilts.........love, love, love the second one :)

    It is fun to see the same pattern made up in totally different fabrics.

    I actually used cookie cutters and hand stitched them. I have found that if you look around your house you will find many different objects.

    That's neat how they look so different. Did you machine quilt your blue/brown one? Are the circles hard to quilt? I have a real need to make a circles quilt and wonder about machine quilting it. thanks for sharing this.

    Both are beautiful!

    It is amazing how using different fabrics it can change the looks of quilt. It is always interesting taking classes at LQS and see all the different choices the other gals have and they all turn out so wonderful and striking.
