Sometimes these are the hardest colours to use. How far will they go? Do I need to buy more? When I have just a small amount I add it to a basket and make a collection. Working with colour for over 40 years has taught me that sometimes More really is MORE, so I just keep adding until I have a goodly amount.
The other thing that I’ve learnt is that sometimes it isn’t worth worrying about a joining colour. If you are working with lots of colours adding one more won’t matter – so either use one that is in quantity. It doesn’t have to be a neutral colour!
I turned this blanket into a little game. Each colour was numbered (I used 30 colours but it would work with any quantity) and I used a random counter to make each square. Once a particular colour was finished I just allocated another to the same number. This ensured a good mix.
Each square took 15 minutes INCLUDING SEWING IN THE ENDS!
Go for it!
