Upstairs, Downstairs Part 3

      I found the process of putting together Upstairs, Downstairs rather inspiring. I bought another bundle of 2 identical jelly rolls on Etsy and started to examine how to put them together. There were only a few oranges in these batiks, so instead of organizing the darkest strips as the diagonals, I used the oranges to be the long diagonals.
     After consultation with The Left Handed Quilter of course. I would have never have figured this out on my own. Sometime, maybe I will find jelly rolls that are easier to sort.

Did not work with darks at top, mixed in oranges

Block strip layout I am going with. There are two identical strips in each folded color so I will get 6 total blocks from each of the 8 columns.

Values in the black and white version

I'm really looking forward to seeing how this one turns out - ;))

Ooh...that should be really pretty. I do like the idea of using a "hot" color for the diagonals.

You have arranged them beautifully, Linda. Yes the black and white photo really does show the values. The fabrics are gorgeous! It will be a bright and happy quilt for sure.
