Looking for input…

I’ve got two charm packs and a jelly roll of Dusty Kona Solids, and I’m wondering what size of a  quilt I can make with this?  One of these days I’ll be down with the “oh 1 yard = baby quilt and 1 1/2 = a toddler bed” lingo, but for now I’m still kind of questioning.  The colors are SO pretty, so I’m really looking forward to making a really pretty quilt with them.  I really want to do something I’ve seen a couple of other bloggers do, where it’s sort of ombré (funny side story, my sister told her boyfriend she was making a ombré easter egg, and he asked where she was going to get a tiny sombrero!  :D)  but there’s a strip that’s flipped.  Also, I’m a total weirdo and I like doing both sides of my quilts as a pattern.  Sure, this takes forever, but it’s just more fun to me.  I always hated getting a store-bought quilt and one side would be okay and the other side was just plain.  I make double the quilt…double the fun?  That’s probably why it takes me forever to make a quilt, but it’s alright.  Big long projects that go on for a long time seem to be the theme of my life.  Anyhow, to give you some dimensions to work with here, the jelly roll has 41 2 1/2″x 44″ strips, and the charm pack has 41 5″ squares, and with 2 there’s 82 squares total.  Until later!  I’ll be awaiting your suggestions!
