Yum! All of them. I just love the ice cream cones. And, I just saw the raspberry (Cocheco) fabric yesterday at the Maine State Museum archives. It was used as a foundation fabric in a crazy quilt. I'll forward this on to Lauri Labar (curator). Thanks for sharing!

I think I've seen the ice cream cones as a reprint, but none of the others. That's a wonderful collection you have.
