I want to make up my own Jelly Roll-like group of fabrics for another Super Secret Project #3.

I remembered seeing these fabrics together after I bought them so I pulled them out and started trying to find some mates. I need about 45 strips, which means 45 different fabrics. That is not a MUST, but that is what I am thinking.

I pulled out some batiks and they were fine (pinks and oranges only-photo is of all of the FQs), but not perfect. I think what I saw was too much of a range of color. I need a range for some contrast, but think my mind doesn’t want too much of a range.

I really thought it would be no problem to pick 40 fabrics, but suddenly, I am not so sure. Should I add some red? Some pink? What do you think a Jelly Roll would have in it?

I know you are all sick of not seeing the finished pieces, but I promise that after I make this piece, I will be MUCH closer to showing you what I am working on.
