No matter how much I move the Whatever blocks around to get an evenly distribution of all the colours, I still fail. Actually, it seems like the harder I try the more of a mess I create. Add that I have to pin each block to the table-cloth-design-wall every time I move them, so it takes a while.
The solution – stop trying. I’ll be adding layers of applique anyway, so no one will ever notice the annoying overrepresentation of one curtain fabric in the top half anyway.
Stack them up and move on..
