Inspiration was hard to come by after my diploma but a practical project for cushions exploring a new weave structure has emerged. I wanted to create an cloth with contrasting colours in sections. This plain weave with weft sections raised is pleasing. My first warp was too small after washing (rusty calculations!) and the edges unsatisfactory, so I covered a small bolster. Now I have just finished a 4m length ready to be turned into cushions.
