Hi all! Well I am doing Chexx Mixx from Atkinson's 9 Patch reunion book. there are 2000 pieces (not counting border and binding). I just added them up from pattern, almost wish i hadn't now! LOL
Anyway, I know there has to be a system to match the fabrics randomly yet with a system. I have the cut pieces laid out by color: pink, green, and blue. Each color is sorted from light to dark. So I have three columns. That is the first picture.
The second picture is of the quilt on the front of the book, so sorry for the glare. It is a shiny book.
I would LOVE to hear ideas on how to randomly but systematically sort them.
Each fabric will be used twice. So green A could be used with Blue B in one block and Pink A in another block.
Thanks a bunch and I cant wait to see your ideas!
