I started with one of the quilt layout settings from the sashing catagory; Sashed Blocks 12.  There are unaltered Contrary Wife blocks in the four largeblocks at the center of the quilt.  I drew a 1/4 version of Contrary Wife tht sit in the four outer quadrants.  The sashing if Opposing Geese 6 and square in a square corner stones.

The more I played with the layout and colorings, the more I saw frost fracing along a winter cold window.

One of my very favorite things to do when designing quilts is make the blocks blend into one another, so you really have to take a second look to figure out where each block starts and stops.  My biggest challenge this  month was picking two two quilts to send in!
