We would be using 2-1/2" strips with her new pattern to be released this spring. Since I use limited precuts (because I am a prewasher) I chose to cut my own strips.
Here are all the strips I initially cut. Included are prints by mainly Alison Glass with some Cotton + Steel, Kona Cotton solids and few more thrown in for good measure. Notice, they are in ROYBGIV order.

Well, now the mystery has been revealed! We will be making Frances Firefly! It looks like each firefly contains 5 fabrics ranging from light to dark.. When I was gathering my fabrics, I wondered if I had enough light fabrics. I decided to do a little shuffling and added a few more fabrics and eliminated others. I decided on 5 groups of 5 different fabrics.

I have not yet made the final decision on the firefly body and background fabrics. I better hurry, Sewtopia is the end of this week!
