REP WEAVINGS - Pansy Forth
Orion's Plumage logo, Weaving Studio of Rosalie Neilson
16 variations of Pansies, Fiberworks-PCW, designer Rosalie Neilson
16-block, 16-shaft profile draft for warp-rep weaving, Fiberworks-PCW, Pansy Forth, designer Rosalie Neilson

Profile Draft for sixteen variations of "Pansy Forth" was created by interleaving two curves from a graphic wallpaper pattern, a mountain curve and a water ripple curve. The designs, initially called Mountain Flowers, reminded me of pansies. Since I chose four designs to weave, I renamed the series "Pansy Forth" as a play on words.

Designed by Rosalie Neilson on Fiberworks PCW, the weaving design software. Below is the Mountain Leaf Variation
