Smile Advice required for thin quarters please

Hello, I have just received my order of 20 quarter yard cuts , civil war scrap collection, from the Quilted Hen, and the material is lovely. I am wondering what pattern to use though. I am leaning to scrappy dissapearing nine patch but would enjoy any suggetions. I am wondering if I do do the d9p should I use the same colour for the middle patch that is cut through , I would have to use additional fabric, or not, if so would a sharp contrast say black be too much.
Thank you in advance for your help
Katherine.
PS Happy New Year to you all from England

I didn't realize that 1/4 yard cuts were called "thin quarters". . . No help with the pattern but Happy New Year to you from Indiana!

I made a pineapple from nothing but "skinny" quarters - civil war reproduction prints - and it turned out gorgeous.

That is a lovely quilt Peckish I dont know that I am up to that standard. I think I must have made up the name 'thin quarters' if no one else has heard them called this.

Hello England and Happy New Year to you too. My daughter's birthday is New Year's Day so the whole world celebrates-I always told her.

What is a thin quarter? Do you mean fat quarter or is thing another new way to cut fabric? I have always enjoyed Civil War blocks set into other period colors like bold pink and deep blues and even a muslin color that allows the quilting pattern to show.
