The trials of deciding colour combos – part 2!

And thus continues my colour combo saga. In part 1, I’d decided to use 3 sudoku puzzles to decide the colour combos for my blocks. The plan seemed like a cunning way to ensure none of the blocks shared a colour combo without having to decide colours for every block in the blanket.

But there was a flaw in the plan!

I realised that if I solved 3 separate puzzles, I could end up with the same number in the same place in multiple puzzles, so the corresponding block would have the same colour multiple times, which I didn’t want. The only thing for it was to find a 3D sudoku puzzle (also known as a Dion Cube), solve that, then use three of the layers, which would guarantee each three colours would be different.

It took a while, but here is is – the 9 layers of the solved 3D sudoku puzzle, with colours instead of numbers. I think it’s kinda pretty…

So the next thing to do should have been simple – pick 3 of the puzzles and use them to pick what colours make up each block.

But the colour combo saga wasn’t really over…
