This was a warp and project that was my first exploration of a complex (for me) gamp.
While a newer weaver, and always trying new things, I loved working on a twill sampler with friend and weaving mentor Jane Stafford via her Canadian Online Guild. The resulting gamp for this set of four towels was inspired by Cally Booker’s step-by-step instructions (weavingspace.co.uk/blog/designing-a-twill-gamp-part-1/) and used some of my favorite colors. The project sampling on a Guild loom was great fun!
There is a band of mixed colors in the center of the towel that is playful, but I would not include that again…love the playful darker bands that are two colors interacting with each other.
