Blanket Project

This project was partly inspired by a blanket my mum bought on Samosir Island back in the 80s. This blanket was woven on a large backstrap loom but I wanted to use my Kromski Rigid Heddle. 
I decided to make it as a series of panels and then join them together. 

First the black panel. Then the red ...

Next I made the Sami band detail. I began to join the panels. 

I want to add another black and another pattern band. I hope to finish it soon. 
Oh I must point out that the weaving is textured and includes 'window pane' patterns created with a pick up stick.
