Woman With Red Lipstick: Part 2

This photo is of my original quilt I entered in the Keepsake Quilting quilt challenge called "Black, White and Red" in the fall of 2007. I had never entered a quilt challenge before and won 2nd place!! That's the good part but the rules stated 1st and 2nd place become property of Keepsake Quilting for their private collection. This collection travels to quilt groups that request it.
I missed my quilt and in 2 yrs. later in the fall of 2009 I redid this quilt without the rules of the challenge. I took a break during the holidays and finished the quilt this week.The following photos are of the finished quilt and a close-up. I love scrappy quilts because I can't pick just 6 fabrics like the challenge. I embellished with glitter, rhinestones and a few small silk flowers on the floral border. I love the "dreamy" stare of the woman in the quilt!! Do you like the original or the new version?
