Jelly Roll Quilt Conundrum.......what to do???


OK, I've got a jelly roll - it's been sitting there for nearly a YEAR!!! A bit shabby-chic for my taste, but it's there...... I went and bought myself yet another rotary cutter (I just know that one of my other 2 hiding cutters will show up now), I've got a cutting mat. I've got a whole day ahead of me.
I WANT TO CUT FABRIC !!!
but.....

I don't know what to make with the jelly roll, I've seen one pattern I really like in a recent magazine that uses a jelly roll, (Handmade Christmas Issue) but there is not enough colour definition in the fabric I've got in hand.
(So I guess it IS a bit too shabby-chic for me!)
Anybody want to do a straight swap?
(Aussie Quilters only sorry!!!!)
Here is Pyro demostrating the colours in my jelly roll - 18 strips @ 2 1/2" Lilac pinks and pale green colours. I'm more a bold colour girl. I like greens and deep pinks or blue and yellow, it doesn't have to be christmas colours like in the pattern I want to try.
(and here I was trying desperately to avoid starting quilting....a failed ambition it seems....)
Oh well, I might as well take up my needle and thread again today - put the patchwork itch on hold for another day.
