Traditional Check bedspread in cotton indigo blue and natural hand woven made in Maine USA

 


Denim blue and natural color cotton yarn used to create this yummy hand woven fabric for a bedspread 
Traditional way to make a hand woven bedspread is to seam the two pieces together .
The hand loom limits how wide you can weave a piece 
My loom is 60 inches wide 
So two pieces are sewn together seam is in the middle of the bedspread in the denim blue check 

Looks fabulous on an antique canopy bedv

Here is a close up of the seam . The whole piece came out perfectly 
A talented person with lots of experience at weaving to know how to match and get the fabric to shrink at the right ratio when washed 
Commissions welcomed

Making potholders for young or old

Keeping yourself busy or children busy can be a new challenge for some folks 
Being a Weaver I found this type of activity engaging and fun 
While being productive 
Children love new things and we have come very far from our ancestral roots where this was an everyday activity 
If you wanted socks you knitted socks 
Potholders were always woven at home by young folks to be given as gifts 
I can remember this as a summer activity 
The neighborhood girls of all ages would sit and weave potholders 
I always envied the older girls cause they knew how to make checks and plaids with the loops 
I could only make multi colored potholders 
Still that was how we all kept busy during those hot summer days 
You can only put together so many puzzles during this time at home 
Try making a potholder  
You’ll get hooked
