You can make any pattern.
Pick a pattern you like.
Separate your FQs. Either by color, warm/cool, light/medium/dark...or not at all. Consider adding a single back ground color and then just using the FQs through out.

Think log cabin, one half colored one half neutral. Pinwheels all different colors with a neutral background. You could do the ones with triangles or the ones made from rectangles--I did the rectangle one for my DS with white and 30s prints and used a button at the center of each white pinwheel for added interest. It turned out awesome, IMHO!!

I too am a fan of the Yellow Brick Road, for a fast easy, fat quarter friendly pattern! Have made several from baby to full. The fun is also picking the color scheme for this quilt. So many ways to go!

Have you considered a puzzle quilt? I can't recall where I got the pattern, but I think it could be duplicated pretty well. You start with 9 fat quarters stacked on top of each other, and with a new sharp blade, cut the fat quarters at the same time in a pattern you want. Then the pieces are shuffled and sewn back together.

I have made several. Let me look for pictures. Okay, the first quilt is a bit bigger...I may have doubled the pattern. The second uses 9 fat quarters.

That is the best DP9 Patch layout I have ever seen. I like everything to flow in an orderly fashion and most layouts I've seen are to random for my taste.
