JULY - offset stacked coins

Emilee and I are switching months because she's out of town and very busy this month.
I am sending each of you some khaki solid fabric as the background for your square (going out today). In the meantime, feel free to start gathering 12 of your favorite fabrics. You will need twelve 1.5" strips in varying lengths (3"-9"). I will include the tutorial in your envelope.

As you can see, I like bright colors and modern/retro prints. But I want your personality to come thru in the fabrics you choose. Your fabrics don't need to coordinate (it's better if they don't). And it's okay if you pick some of the same fabric I did. All the squares will stack in columns without sashing. This quilt was the inspiration for my square:
