Anyone know a quilt pattern?

I have scored two pretty jelly rolls for a combined $9.
Each roll has about 50 2.5" wide strips, consisting, however, of only 5 different fabrics.

I was thinking of making a quilt out of each of the two, combining them with some white-on-white-ish fabric for a nice and light spring/summer quilt.

Thing is, I cannot find a pattern for jelly roll quilts of which the jelly roll consists of only 5 different fabrics.
All patterns I found have many more different fabrics.

Any ideas?

How about a rail fence variation, with only 2 "rails". Here's a drawing that sort of illustrates what I mean (it's not exact), but imagine each of those "streaks of lightning" as one of your 5 fabrics.
Blue Stairs Quilt

(Yeah, I know this is NOT a perfect example of what I'm suggesting: the rails are different widths in this picture, and it uses multiple fabrics, each in a distinct block, but I hope it gets the idea across of individual 2-color streaks, one of your 5 fabrics paired with your light background fabric.)

Hi,
now I am a complete beginner at quilting but only having 5 fabrics sounds ideal for me.

I bought the jelly roll by moda spring fever which had a range of very similar fabrics so to me looking at them from light to dark I only had 5 differing sorts.
In the Feb/March 2010 Issue of Quilt they had a quilt called the Garden Fence where the middle of quilt is made from 5 fabrics. I made a similar one out of my jelly roll. The quilt turns out similar to the above posters photo.
The 5 strips are sewn together ranging light to dark, then cut into 10.5" blocks.
They are then arranged as either the lightening effect or each next block turned 90 degrees.

I really liked it as it was quick to do and the quilt instructions were labelled beginner (ideal for me!).

French Braid would lend itself to a small number of fabrics. And it's a fast/easy piecing. It could, in fact, be quilt as you go to some degree, if you wanted to go that route. If you "google" French braid quilts you'll get links to the techique - no real pattern needed. AND you'll get to see Googe's Earth Day banner.

Make a strip of all the colors. EX: blue, red, green, yellow, orange. My math might be off but, all strips sewn with a 1/4 inch seam should get you a piece of fabric approx 11.5 inches wide. Now cut them into squares 11.5 inches. Lay the first block with the strips going up and down then turn the next block 1/4 turn so the blocks are going left to right. then alternate the next row. I don't know what the pattern is called but it is simple. You could do the strips the same colorway or mix up the strips EX: orange, red, yellow, blue, green. Hope this helps. Email me if you don't understand and I will send you my drawing. I just don't know how to attach here.
