    How about doing a 1600, and you could do the one where you randomly add a 2.5 inch square.

    How about a rail fence quilt, just sew strips together, cut apart and you have a quilt. There are a few on MSQC that would work as well, but I can't remember their names right now.

    Now, the one thing that made me say "ooooooh...." when I saw your quilt was the color placement. it's great and very modern.

The darker charcoal squares were left over Minkie from our DD Christmas quilt backing. Maybe not the best placing of color, but it used what I had. Got the bright lime green flannel with white dots for the backing for under $3/yd at JoAnn's yesterday on sale.

    I love your crayons!

    My favorite to use with charm packs is the "Disappearing 9 Patch". It's quick, easy and looks nice when finished.
