Meadow Mystery: Caught Up & Ready for the Reveal

I'm participating in the Meadow Mystery Quilt Along designed and hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs.  Going into January 1st, I had completed up to the September clue.  I completed the October clue on January 2nd, and at that point I set my One Monthly Goal for January to be getting caught up with all the clues, including the January clue.

November Clue
And I made it!  I now have 25 blocks, ready for the reveal of the layout that comes later this week. (Only one block of each type is pictured.)
December Clue

January Clue
I do have a problem.  I will need to remake my block 6s, which was September's clue.  Because I am using batiks and they have more color variation in them than I realized, those blocks do not have enough contrast.  I'm going to wait until the layout reveal to decide how to make them.  I'm hoping I can make something work--I chose to use up fabrics I had, so I didn't have a lot of extra, so I'm almost out of a few of the fabrics (or fabric groups, since 2 "fabrics" are scrappy).
The blocks that need to be remade.  See my problem?
I don't have a design wall or a big space to lay out blocks.  I did play a little with the finished blocks, using the most popular layouts from the facebook group, but I could only fit the center medallion.

I can't wait to see what the final design is!  I've had a good time seeing everyone's versions of the same quilt.

I was goal setter #37 in Elm Street Quilts monthly motivational link-up OMG.
