The Surprise Nine-Patch Quilt Top

I am working on a jelly roll quilt top. I got two different jelly rolls and decided to cut nine  2 1/2 inch blocks from each strip. Then I started making nine-patch blocks.  When I get through with making up all the nine patches, I will sew the rest in 3 strips. After that I will cut the three strips and insert all the  nine patch blocks, scattering them through the fabric. The surprise is you will have to figure out where the nine patches are. And you never can tell what color is going to be by what color.
