Oh my some smaller print and solids would help calm it down! Cut fabric, some fussy cutting would work nicely with a log cabin or square in a square block. If you added some other fabrics Yellow brick road pattern would be cute also.

I think fussy cutting the witch fabric for a Warm Wishes pattern would look great. Love your fabrics!

Be sure and cut strips from both to save for binding. These colors make terrific looking binding to add just the right amount of pop color to a quilt that needs help.

If you know how to do a d9p with directional fabric you could fussy cut the squares. when doing the d9p and your flip the two corners just switch them for each other don't flip and the pattern will stay in the same direction. good luck I love the fab. but I think it is to big for a regular d9p.
pm me is questions.
