Default Bargello quilt with 10 fabrics?

So I bought a jelly roll thinking I'd do a bargello with it. It's so pretty. Blue batiks, already coordinated for me and everything. I really love it. Only thing is, it only has 10 different fabrics (4 strips of each), and it seems all the bargello patterns I've found call for 20 fabrics or so (some a few more, some a few less). Is there such a thing as a bargello pattern with only 10 fabrics?

You can make a bargello with any number of colors.
If you do a google search for bargello images, you'll find many examples of patterns with just a few colors.
Good luck!

I thought of this, but I bought the fabric at a quilt show and I can't figure out where it came from now Maybe I need to keep searching. I'm sure I have the reciept or a bussines card somewhere. I just thought it'd work better if the fabric was all the same brand, so I started thinking maybe I need to find a different pattern rather than more fabric. KWIM?

Ah well, I'll make something work somehow.

Ooh I just got this book. Maybe I just didn't look at this one because it's smaller? I'll check it out.
