Working on Projects - Overshot

Since I am trying to get some project completed,  I thought I would go ahead and sew this pillow top into a "pillow". I have had this pillow topper finished for - maybe - a couple of years. Well, now it has become what it's always wanted to be: 'a pillow'!!!

I believe this was when I was doing some creative overshot. I would take a traditional overshot draft and treadle it with a different set of treadlings instead of just treading 'tromp as writ'. Came up with some really great designs on one threading.


Even though I am trying to learn everything I can about single two-tie, my first love is overshot.

What a beautiful pillow. Overshot is always a favorite of mine.
