Choosing batiks......

The first 8 blocks I pieced last week were from pretty much a random grab of squares and strips.  Now I want to plan out the other 27 blocks.  This is the group of 6.5" squares from which I will choose 27 pieces.
I have 7 drawers full of 2.5" strips that I cut on a regular basis.  I chose 27 out of 2 of the drawers.

This is the assortment I ended up with.
I will cut the strips into their segments and then pair them with a square.  At that point I'll go to the box of 1.5" strips and choose 27 of them and cut them into segments.  Then I will be ready to sew.
