A new French inspired project

I bought a few charm packs of some Moda French General fabric ranges. I've been eyeing them for a while now, I do love the shades of red and antique greens. I'm still deciding what to do with them, maybe a nine-patch quilt? Or something else traditional? The solid cream fabric is not working very well with the antique prints; I think its too light and crisp. I need to find a darker neutral solid for making the nine-patches.

We have a new pet, Sweety-Bird, a hand-reared baby budgie, who makes quilting more difficult as he wants constant attention and tends to flap his wings impatiently when he doesn't get it, sending carefully laid fabric pieces flying around... naughty!
