What was your inspiration?

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It was tempting to cut a bunch of layers at a time event though the instructions were to cut them individually. I made a silly 1/4" mistake on my second set of 3 stacked fabrics which was a big bummer because I was trying to only use fabrics that I had. Oops. After that I went back to cutting them one at a time.
I am still working on this quilt top so if I come across anything else to add to this section I will!
