Rep Runners: A Study in Block Design Using Linked Blocks and Solid Stripes

Saturday – Monday, September 16–18, 2017

Using the same profile draft, weavers will thread an 8-shaft loom with four or five different colors of 3/2 cotton or 5/2 cotton. Choose three pattern colors and one or two background colors. The runner will feature a series of 4-block center designs with side borders showing 2-block linked designs in opposite colors. The center motifs and border motifs will be separated from each other by solid colored stripes. Weavers will select 6 to 9 different 4-block motifs using Design Pages from An Exaltation of Blocks. Believe it or not, there are 1,024 different 4-block motifs. Weavers will receive enough motifs in their handouts to whet their creative appetites!
