So I put it on the loom and started. When I first put it on the loom, I had my doubts. It suddenly seemed a bit too lavender. Oh well, let me weave a few inches and decide.
Oooh... I like it! I like it a LOT.
That settled, I made some more wonky nine patch blocks. Actually I only made two of them.
They are a bit busy but the contrast in both color and value passed the camera monochrome test.
So I laid out all the blocks I have made for this so far.
There are 24 of them. Which means that I have six more to make. I already have the fabrics cut out all I have to do is stack, cut, sew, press and repeat until those six are complete and I can start to assemble the quilt. Wow, a little at a time really does get it done before you know it.
And speaking of done, I sat at the loom for a while and kept on weaving. I find it wonderfully meditative work. I can just get lost in it. And I did. Before I knew it, I was finished weaving. I cut it off the loom and did the finish work. Would it be bad to keep it for myself? Well, yes it would. I know the one who commissioned it is eager to get it. This cold snap we are having will be a perfect time to put it to use.

The periwinkle yarn blended with the colored yarn beautifully. I think I want to do one now with alternating light blue and cream warp threads.
How about some detail shots of this woven goodness?
I think I had a productive day on Saturday. I am very happy with my accomplishments for the day. I hope your day was equally good.
