More quilts, more canes...

So I did a boatload of Snail's Trail quilt pattern canes a while back.  I experimented with color and pattern.  I made two different canes using mostly the same colors and a "fabric" pattern:

The problem with using a "fabric" pattern in a quilt cane is that it can get "muddy" when it's reduced .  I think that's what happened with the top cane.  The bottom one looks less so because the "fabric" is surrounded by white.  It acts as an insulator and is more distinct rather than muddy.

At least...that's my best guess....
