Sampler Napkins, almost…

Fresh off the loom

Instead of making the 8″ Four Shaft Color & Weave sampler blanket from Janet Phillip’s Exploring Woven Fabrics, I decided to expand the draft into 8 napkins, plus some room for play at the end. This was a fabulous project, I really enjoyed seeing how each wefting was affected by the different light/dark threadings (1×1, 2×2, 4×4).

Of course, now they need cutting, hemming, washing & pressing. The towels I took off the loom in May, 2020 😳 are still awaiting the final hems. Obviously, not my favorite part of the process!
