A little coffee indulgence

My kitchen is currently decorated with a coffee theme, and the new Java line matches the colors perfectly, especially with the reds and oranges and browns.  I would love to get the kit and make this quilt. However, seeming how the kitchen will not be only mine in a couple months, and Jerry spent the last few years working in a coffee shop, that theme is not up his alley. But I couldn't help getting a little bit of it for myself - and got a charm pack on the way by the quilt store this morning.
I made a reversible cup sleeve (since they know me by name at the coffee shop) and am working on a coaster. I am not sure if I want to make the bottom of it a pinwheel like the top or not. I am a little perplexed however about how it turned out to be a larger square than I began with. And for that reason I think I may have to make another pinwheel. I might have gone ahead with it, but I think I will put a proper little binding on this - and don't want to make time tonight. I've got to go back to work tomorrow for the first time since Dec 23.
