Fabric purchase

I had a box show up yesterday with some fabric I ordered from eQuilter. I had a $10.00 coupon, got free shipping and everything I ordered was on clearance. The fabric ended up being $6.97 a yard. The blue with ducks on it was bought for a baby quilt, the purple with keys is for backing smalls, the skeleton fabric is for the back of the next Harley raffle quilt, and the cutlery fabric was bought as an option for a woman I work with who wants some placemats for a Mother's Day gift. The cutlery fabric is a Japanese import and is a linen like fabric. It is really nice stuff!
I spent some time looking for fabric to go with the cutlery print in case the woman wants the placemats with a different fabric on each side.
Then I went digging for fabric for the baby quilt. Blue, green, and yellow are the colors the parents are using to decorate the nursery. I haven't decided what design I am going to make, but I pulled these fabrics as possibilities.
I am leaning toward a chevron design, because they look like I put in more effort than they really take.

The cutlery fabric is perfect for placemats.
Chevrons are always popular and fun to make.

That fabric was a huge bargain! I love the cutlery fabric too.
