|For years I have been playing with the idea of turning weft-faced rugs on their side and weaving their designs in warp-face. Both of these tapestries were inspried by images from the book Spanish
American Blanketry, by H.P. Mera and edited by Kate Peck Kent. Interestingly, the technique that enables the designs is the braided arrow sashes from Native American Northeast (Quebec and New England
groups). The idea is not to copy -- that would be impossible technically -- but to give a sense of the design.
