Just finished weaving some yardage for Judy Anderson using her handspun wool singles. This is my first attempt at overshot weaving and I loved seeing how the “blooming leaf” came out as I treadled the pattern. Thanks Judy for getting me to try this!
The pattern is on page 184 in A Handweaver’s Pattern Book by Marguerite Davison. She sourced it as based on an old coverlet from Kirby Knob, KY. I used 5/2 pearl cotton (colors #32 Lipstick and black) with at sett of 15epi. for the warp. The weft was Judy’s handspun wool singles. I only used part of the pattern. I put the blooming leaf in the center and mirrored the rest of the design on both sides of a 28 inch width in the reed. The reds do not show true in the pictures but the rich red is beautiful against the black and grey. Hurrah! I haven’t surrendered yet and I hope to sew up the project soon!
