Sudoko quilt

I’m in the middle of a quilt-along and I’ve reached the stage where my blocks are all pieced and just need sashing so of course I’m ignoring the neat little pile of fabric and planning my next quilt.

My computer at work is really rubbish and takes about half an hour to load in the mornings so I’ve taken to having a pile of old Guardian sudokos in a pile by my computer, reading for that wasted time.

I got to thinking (partly inspired by the comments on this post: ) that I’d like to have a go at developing a sudoko quilt. Basically a sort of nine patch in a nine patch with nine colours and no repeat colours in a block. I’m thinking possibly all the colours of the rainbow plus black and white, with a neutral sashing. The basic plan would be 1 = red, 2 = orange etc etc. Some sudoko setters leave a pattern in the numbers they give as hints and those squares could be picked out in patterns/plains as appropriate for a little extra interest. What do you reckon?
