Finished Checker BoardThis project produced several cloth checker boards and a couple checker board table runners.  The structure for these pieces is summer and winter and they were woven with 10/2 and 5/2 mercerized cotton.

The table runners have checkerboards on each end and would allow two games of checkers, chess or other game to be played simultaneously.  

This was my first project using the summer and winter weave structure and I am looking forward to investigating its possibilities further.

This was my first project warping the loom from back to front - and I am a convert!

For more pictures of this project both on the loom and off the loom, check out my photo gallery for this project.
