Hexen Blitzen

I’m loving Basic Grey’s new “Blitzen” fabric. Look at me making something months ahead… soooo not my nature. Tried out this fabric with just a Charm Pack to see if I would like it. I am not a huge fan of holiday-ish fabrics. I don’t do cutesy. I really like this line!

Not much more to post. I haven’t sat at my machine in what seems like ages. I am presently on day 7 of a migraine and stiff neck. I’m going for a Guinness world record… or maybe just a Guinness :-)

Ideas? Anyone? Beuler? Beuler?

Actually all four are sewn now but this is a pic of one.

It’s going to be a small cuddle-up-and-read-a-book quilt. That’s all I can do with 1 charm pack of Cherish Nature by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics . I want to assemble it in an asymmetrical style. Maybe the four main blocks (with sashing) to the side and … oh I dunno. Ideas? Maybe some prairie points??

Here is a poor diagram I did in Photoshop. The area to the left with the “X” would be something else going on to the left of the 4 blocks. Maybe some solid Kona with quilting?? I am using eggshell for the sashing… I think.
After laying it out on the floor {yeah, I know, I need to make a flannel quilt wall} I think I have decided to keep with some traditional sashing in between the four squares and go from there. Now, do I use the Eggshell or Aqua Kona????
