Auditioning warp colors and fabrics, this was the beginning of a series of table runners. I ended up with twelve colors in the warp, and used different coordinating batik fabrics for weft. The cotton prints in the basket were set aside for a future warp.
Since I have a horizontal countermarche loom, I make my warps in two halves, most often on the warping mill.
One runner in a series using various “wine” batiks.
