Default Christmas Fat Quarters

I bought 32 Christmas fat quarters at a garage sale for $3.50. Whoo-hoo! Does anyone know of a free Christmas quilt pattern? I've made a simple table runner before out of 3 fat quarters, but I've never had this many at one time...ha. I'm at a lost of what to do. Thanks.

I would make different stars with them and then sash with a solid red or green fabric. As a matter of fact--I have a box full of Christmas Stars with the sashing fabric in my UFO cabinet. I plan to set my favorite star on point and surround it with setting triangles which will also make a star pattern. The rest of the blocks will be straight set with sashing. I might drag it back out and work on it as soon as I finish the 3 projects I am currently bouncing back & forth on.

That's a really good idea. And I have some pretty white fabric that could be used as the background. Hope you post pictures of your star quilt when you're finished.
