I like Craft Warehouse's fabric better than JoAnns just based on quality, price is comparable. I learned they had a S.A.L.E. Yep! Yay . . . for my stash! So every bolt was 30% off ($6-8/yd.), had to find an array of deliciousness.
Mary Englebreit fabric, because it's not black background for once. I love a lot of her stuff, mainly because it does have black, but also they are whimsical.
Coffee . . . you can never have enough! I'm thinking of birthday/new year's gifts for people with these . . . or something. I'm intrigued by the words and it's not a coffee ring or bean, so expands out my creative options.
Then I found random things that I love or can use.
In the meantime, I had an inspiration from PBS with Fon's & Porter's Love of Quilting. I watched it muted because I was really watching something online that is too embarrassing to admit (Say Yes to the Dress), and it was Gail Kessler's Strata Quilt. The concept of it is interesting, but a huge waste of fabric.

I cut out the 9 1/2" blocks from my strip set and it created 3 blocks. When you layer the other blocks on top, sew diagonally, you should have 6 total (2 strip sets x 3 blocks each = 6) Hmmm.
