Someone has to be first

The long wait is over. The date above may well be shown as 31 January but, here in Australia, it is Friday, 1 February and I present to you my trio of quilts:
Organic Chocolate
This theme is near and dear to my heart. When Francoise announced the theme, I was immediately inspired by the lines in the large tablets of chocolate that often make their way into my grocery basket. And just as it can be difficult to choose in the supermarket aisles, I'm trying to work out which of the trio - white, milk or dark (individually clickable) - should go forward into the Twelve by Twelve collection. I have a preference but I'd be interested to know what others think. I've put a survey in the sidebar so that you can cast a vote.

PS: Your choice of quilt does not need to match your chocolate preference.

Update: Here are the final results of the three day poll. On its own, I prefer "Milk Chocolate" but I agree that "Dark Chocolate" fits in better with the Twelve by Twelve collection.

Brenda!! Fantastic!! I love these quilts and have no clue how one would choose between them (just like real chocolate).

Your quilts are not visble on my broswer! if I click I get a mesasge that I am not authorised to view the page. What did I do to ofend?! I saw them on your blog though. Very you. I could have pickd those out as being your style if I just saw them without any clues. How do you think you came to get such a distinctive style?

Brenda, these are so elegant. The "dark" one says "chocolate" to me most, but visually the "milk" one really pulls me in too.

They look good enough to pluck off my screen and pop into my mouth.

Dark chocolate every time (especially if its Maya Gold)

Gerrie said...

Love these. Love the simplicity and the abstract nod to chocolate. Yumm!

Karen said...

Brenda, these are so great! I think I like the milk chocolate best, but that's probably because I like milk chocolate best.

Beverly said...

Dark chocolate, the darker the better!

Terry said...

Add my vote for dark chocolate. Not just because it's my favorite kind of chocolate, I just love that quilt the most! It really says "chocolate!" to me.

Deborah said...

Yes, I agree. Dark is best. I love its slightly wonky lines. But the three quilt are stunning all together. Great job.

I would have gone for the light one (which is not my choice of chocolate!!) and second the dark (sadly still not my choice of chocolate) but love all three, the lines are so simple a solution but really do work. Love no binding on it either.

I love the brown in the milk chocolate, but overall, my preference is dark -- just like my favorite chocolate. Nice abstraction of the theme.

Françoise said...

Dark!
But I like the three of them.

Nikki said...

Difficult choice. I would have to to with the dark also as the most chocolatly. If I think too hard I start to question myself.

I voted for the dark but each one is wonderful. I enjoy looking at them together to appreciate what each one does.
