Hi - is it possible to generate some kind of pattern out of different numbers of colour. To illustrate my problem..... I was making bunting for my daughter's bedroom. I had four colours - 32 of one, 18 each of two different colours, 15 of another. What I wanted to do was create some kind of pattern so that no two colours were next to each other and that there was some kind of even-ness to their distribution. Clearly regularity would be unlikely, but I was sure there was some kind of formula that might achieve a kind of pattern.

This calculator would be of help I think to many people who sew - often they are constructing patchwork quilts out of scrap bits of fabric and this would help them find the most efficient way of using their scraps.

FAO TIMUR - My email address is karenluckhurst@aol.com. Shoud you require further work we can continue to operate through Freelancer if you prefer, but I do feel we have paid our dues to them now. Also, if you know of anyone else that wants their English tidying up, please put them in touch. Regards, Karen
