    Default Opinions welcome

    Hi

    I need your opinions.

    I can not decide if I should go with white ribbon on dark background or
    Dark ribbon on white background.

    What do you think ?

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    I like how the lights wrap around [is that the ribbon you speak of?] and make a dark diamond in the middle in picture one.

    This is the sort of thing I bought EQ for.

    I also like the lights towards the outside edge. To me it looks more cohesive and pulled together. I do not know what you mean by the terms "dark ribbon" or "white ribbon" as I don't see any sashing there that I guess you could call a ribbon, and I don't see any ribbons either. Am I missing something?

    I had to think a bit what you meant by ribbon and it clicked. I like your second picture better.

    In the first picture all the dark colored hst form the background and the white hst form a ribbon or a band of white over the background. In picture 2 the white fabric becomes the background and the dark colored hst form the band or ribbon.

    Hope it clarifies it a bit.

    I also like the dark ribbon on the light background. I think the "ribbon" is more defined.

    hmmm, I see no difference. My eyes aren't seeing what y'all see.

    But I think they both look fine.
