Primary Colored Baby BlanketThese blankets were woven at half the final width then seamed together by needle weaving two panels while matching the pattern.  It was fun to try out another technique for weaving a project that is wider than the weaving width of my loom.  The blankets were woven with with stripes of red, yellow and blue 5/2 cotton in the warp and the same red 5/2 cotton for the weft.  I used the random stripe generator to help to design the stripe pattern then further modified its output to work with the width of my design.  The weave structure is a point twill pattern from The Handweaver's Pattern Directory (page 71 - bottom of the page).  If you want to read a bit more about my experience weaving this project, please check out my project journal.
