New Fabrics and Prizes

Last week I won a contest from Tak of Saltbox House Quilter.
Imi makes beautiful lace doilies and not only did I win that, but she sent me some beautiful fabric and a charm pack from Jan Patek's line, plus a pattern, I could use them in. Now that is a package that I loved opening and winning.

I also got down to my local quilt store that has the best prim fabric. I needed some black for my pineapple quilt, so I got two types to try out. When I laid them out, I liked the right side pattern, but looking at the photo, I am leaning towards the bottom.
This will be a border around the design, then additional squares and triangles go around that. What one do you like?

Very Nice.
The little design on the 'right '
fabric fits in with the centre.

Wow! That's a fantastic prize package to win! Love the doily and the colors of the fabrics... and the pattern too! LOL! Your pineapple quilt is looking GREAT! I'm leaning towards the bottom border piece...

Great package!!!

I like both fabrics so that's a touch decision. Maybe the fabric at the bottom?

From the photo the bottom piece looks stunning. However...I do know that up close and personal vs a photo is so different. What is your gut telling you?
