I have a buttload of 6.5 inch squares of Heather Bailey Freshcut and I can't for the life of me decide what I want to do with them!  (I also have a few other freshcut fabrics that are scraps from yardage--they range from 2inch strips to fat quarters or slightly larger--that I could use to supplement.

I've thought about pinwheels but that seems kinda boring right now.  I also don't want to just put sashing between the squares since I JUST made a quilt like that. 

I need some creative help!

I'm thinking something like hexagons (not grandmothers flower garden type, but 60degree triangles), or dresden plates, or even cathedral windows.  I just can't decide!

OK so it is none of what you mentioned except for pinwheels...but...I am working on http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/03/pinwheel-baby-quilt.html (would be finished but didn't have enough white on hand) I used 8 fat quarters instead and I could make at least one more quilt out of the fat quarters that I used. This would be super cute and super easy to modify for the larger size, you could even make the half square triangles really simple (like I did cut your white the same size as your freshcuts then draw a line diagonal, then sew on either side, then cut down the line you drew) put them together (maybe rows of four by five long or more instead of three by four and instead of doing a two inch strip you could make it three, your prairie points would be a little larger, and you could do a little bit bigger outside border. Make it a lap quilt instead of a baby quilt!!!!
I love this pattern by the way it went together SUPER fast!!!! Nothing better then that!

Ok, I am officially going to start stalking you! Grin  Everytime I notice a post of yours, you invariably have, show, or say something that's right up my alley!  This punwheel baby quilt is DIVINE! and I think the prairie point thing really goes along with the taggie idea that is so popular right now.  I can just imagine a baby playing with those little points!
