A Plan for some Fat Quarters

Remember when Melissa, Holly, and Sarah returned from QuiltCon and brought me presents?  (as if anything at that point would cheer me...)  There was an additional set of fat quarters, some terrific surface-print fabrics.  Special fabrics - the kind that are hard to find.  One day last week I unrolled the pack and ironed them.  And then I threw them down on the design floor.  10 fat quarters - each 18' x 22".  Here they are below:

By cutting each quarter in half, there are 20 blocks.  By using a wide sashing of maybe 4.5", each block will be set off nicely and create and great size - 80" x 98". And I found a wonderful grey linen-like cotton that will pair nicely.  I might even try a shadow box type of design.  I'll decide that later.  These blocks, my tentative layout, and the grey for sashing are tucked away on one of the shelves, ready for construction!

I've recently shown the red/grey/black quilt for grandson Jack.  Sam, Nikki, Ryan, and Natalie have had recent quilts.  Now it's Brandon's turn, and  I think these fabrics are perfect for him.  Then on  to Benjamin!
