First of all, this project was a nice challenge because I wanted to weave cotton blankets in neutral tones but without a perfect supply of colours on hand. This is actually not a problem, it's a solution (or you have to see it that way). Artists often talk about, and even admit, that limitations help them focus on a particular project. If we all had unlimited time and resources, we'd get nothing done, right? This project was a reminder of that and I had to be a bit extra creative to find enough fibres to warp eight blankets, 60" wide on the loom.
Each of the six blankets below has a warp that's a blend of soft beige, natural and some yellows. I wove with more soft colours for some of the blankets, and stronger colours for others. The eight blankets are remarkably diverse, which I always consider a success.
The first four blankets are machine hemmed, and the last two are fringed and a bit more elegant. All are machine washable.
Here they are. As always, feel free to contact me if you're interested in any.
