DESCRIPTION:    Using the same profile draft, weavers will thread an 8-shaft loom with 4 or 5 different colors of 3/2 cotton to design a table runner. The runner will feature a series of 4-block designs in the center, with a border featuring 2-block motifs in opposite colors.  The border will be separated from the center designs by a solid color stripe of 2 colors. Weavers will use a series of Design  Pages from an “Exaltation of Blocks designed by Rosalie Neilson. 

LOOM REQUIREMENT:  8 shafts required
