    Ok, seeing as I made a "Chocolate and Raspberry" quilt and I love it, I'll vote for "Fall", only because I don't have a fall quit!

    I like the idea to buy after Christmas for next year.

    I've never done a block Swap. Is the pattern up to us? I'd love to do Raspberry and Choc at sometme but right now I'd vote for Fall colors.

    This is where I first saw the combo:

    http://www.connectingthreads.com/fab...it_KD2056.html

    Then not long after I saw this:

    http://quilting.about.com/b/2009/06/...-pinwheels.htm

    The swap would most likely have a mail by date of October 31st and be a 12.5" unfinished block pattern of your choice.

    i like the brown with the pink (the pinwheel) but i don't care for the brown with the burgundy. i think those 2 colors together look too dark.

    I think we could probably add creams to the mix also.

    I feel like the chocolate rasberry can be such a range, and by the two postings you put up Colletta, very different. I love the lighter but intensly dislike the darker colors of brown/burgandy.

    I'll keep my vote for the fall colors and keep my fingers crossed!

    my vote is still for the fall too

    but i was wondering, wouldn't the choc/rasp be cream & brown with the raspberry ranging from pink to burgundy?

    So far my rough tally is: (I think I've gotten all the votes submitted but not positive. I'll go back through for the final tally).

    Chocolate Raspbery- 11

    Fall- 12

    Christmas- 2

    I'll wait until the end to cast my vote. hehe

    Well. . . . Would white be allowed in the choc/rasp mix? Could you be more specific about the exact colors? Thanks~

    Fall sounds good though I already have a quilt planned with a fall collection I got recently.

    My other choice would be Christmas as I have not done one before.
