Betty Dear

Let me explain.  I've been trying REALLY hard to be frugal and use up my sizable fabric stash.  But I've been drooling over Darlene Zimmerman's new fabric line "Betty Dear" and could resist no longer.  I bought the entire line in fat quarter cuts from Thecalicogirl on Etsy today.
Betty Dear
It's a huge splurge for me - I don't think I've ever bought an entire line of anything.  I already have a pattern in mind.   I think these fabrics would look great in a "wagon wheel" quilt block.  Some fabulous examples are saved in my Favorites on Flickr.

After searching through various online sources, and realizing this is a pretty straightforward pattern, I will most likely draft my own pattern.  I just need to figure out how big I want my blocks and how many spokes I want to radiate out from the center. 

Would would you do if a bundle of Betty Dear landed on your doorstep?
