Or you could think about every 1-1/2" strip would be enough for 8 of the 5" pieces and you need 60 so that would be 8 strips and every wof would be enough for 5 of the 7" pieces and you need 60 so 12 strips. That adds up to 20 strips times 1-1/2 would be 30". Hopefully this math is right.
    You've done the math for the inner sashing, between the charms and the jelly strips, but there is a second sashing between blocks according to Jenny's tutorial:

    If I am right, the blocks are 11" squares (unfinished). Assuming the layout is 5 by 6 blocks, you need 824" linear inches more, that is 21 strips 1 1/2" by WOF, wich are 31" more inches of fabric required.

    I am currently obsessed with orange so that is definitely what I would chose. Sounds like it would tie in well with your backing fabric too.

    I kinda like the cream colors ..... I think they would really make the colors pop.

I only have 1 1/4 yard and no hope of finding extra is that enough? I read the comments below the tutorial and a few commented that the honey bun was not enough fabric for the quilt.

    I would finish the top first personally and then decide. I do that in case i have more of one color on the edges of the finished top that is the same as the border i planned to use. I just dont like using a border that may make a block look like it kind of blends or bleeds into the boder. Hope that makes sense, and thts just my weierd habit i have developed over time.

    Oh - if you decide on the exploding square, you could easily alternate solid colors.

    I had to look up the jungle pattern: Moda Bake Shop: Jungle Path Baby Quilt

    I like it best.

    I think you need to go light on whatever color you choose. I think a light orange or teal would look great. You might want to think about who the quilt is for to help decide this color.

    I have Grand Finale and I plan on using the teal as my binding. I'm going to do a simple DSLC. I have several pieces of yardage I will piece together for the back and you are right, the Awesome is a perfect pairing with it.

    Sandy Gervais also had the Posh Pumpkins this past fall that co-ordinates with them as well.
