Picking myriad of fabrics- next project

     When our guild was on its field trip to the Quilt Farm, I saw a quilt that grabbed my attention and bought the pattern. It was Harvest Dawn. I only bought background fabric and was determine to pick batiks out of my stash to make this. I pulled out lots of fabrics and tried to put them in a value scale. I need 42 strips, 2 of each color. I took multiple photos and changed the photos to black and white to figure it out. Now I have to cut strips from all this fabric.
First try, light to dark, 3 sets of colors
Problem in the dark values

Better arrangement 
Final colors to cut into 2 1/2" strips

It will be a pretty quilt with those fabrics. You can cut some for your colorwash project too.
