Confetti Time

     This a wonderful pattern from Wilmington Prints, although I can't find it online at the moment, called Confetti. It used one 40 strip jelly roll and one 40 strip blues jelly roll (I cut different blues to make mine). It took time to arrange the strip sets in colors that would value grade and move the eye.

I tried a bunch of strip set layouts, did not like a couple of the strips, especially the two toothy looking ones.
Looked through my batiks to see what I could substitute

Settled on this layout and strips

Sewing pairs, then pairs to pairs careful to alternate starting to stitch from top, then from bottom to avoid those nasty bowing strips

Cutting the subsets of strips

Now, I am going to put a blue strip border all around because I  don't want all those seams in the binding. And take off the numbers.

Your groupings of colors worked out really well. It is going to be a beautiful quilt.
