Vintage Christmas

I just finished a small wall hanging flimsy.  It is from a pattern by Cheri called "Vintage Christmas".  It turned out darker than I thought it would.  I am not sure I like it that dark.  The fabrics were from stash so that is a good thing to have used up a bit.  The quilt is about thirty inches square.
The dark green fabric is a piece by Kansas Troubles.  It has holly leaves which are more tone on tone looking and tiny berries that are more to the rust side of red so I used a rust fabric with it.  The corner squares are from a line called "Worn and Loved".

Now what will I work on?  I have plenty to chose from.
