Woven Backgrounds

I like how the summer & winter woodblock print came out. I'd like to try throwing weaving into more of my prints.

Broken lozenge twill would be a good choice I think. Otherwise known as broken diamond twill.

Here's a detail from my Y1K coat in broken lozenge twill. It's a pleasing pattern. Perhaps too repetitive?

Of course summer & winter is infinitely variable, and I could stick with it for awhile.

This sampler (front and back) was woven in varieties of summer & winter mimicking Fair Isle. Greyed out they'd make good background, and otherwise they'd make good pattern texture. 8-]
