WIP- I don't know what to do

I have my pile of DS Fairground and Picnic.  I started cutting and sewing and then I sort of lost my way.  I made a few too many HST's paired with white and now I can't decide what to do.  Originally I was going to do pinwheel squares with a couple of variations on the basic pinwheel block.  Then I thought maybe I'd do star blocks with variations for the center, some solid, some pieced.  Maybe Star blocks with pinwheels inside them.  Then I found what I think is called a criss cross block and it looks like it would be fun too.  There's another block that I saw recently that looks a lot like a criss cross, but when I went back to look for it I couldn't find it.  There's something about the Fairground and Picnic lines that seem to lend themselves to more traditional blocks, in a way that most of the fabrics I buy don't.

What to do?  Any other suggestions for traditional-ish blocks that use HST's?
Imagine these block are actually made with a variety of fabrics.
 As you can see I sort of got carried away with this one fabric.

linking up to Freshly Pieced  I wish I could get that button thingy to work.


  1. Hello Eva Marie, sounds like you're having both my problems! I can't work out the button thingy AND my HSTs turned out completely different to what I'd originally envisaged! I love what you've done with yours but especially the Star Block with the pinwheel inside.

  2. I really like the one on the left with the inner pinwheel!
