It depends how the part-ends come out, as 6 1-parts, 3 2-parts or 
2 3-parts. If there were 3 2-part blocks and you were lucky then a 
Q-set of bobs or omits might link them together. It's not guaranteed,
compare with a 10-part of Stedman Triples were there is a division into
5 2-part blocks, but the available Q-sets do not link them together.
