June 26, 2011 AND I NAILED IT!
I decided to give this another shot since Dana smoked me with it on her 3rd backstrap warp! LOL
I used left over partial skeins of red, white and blue. Used a backstrap loom, and had plenty of problems with the warp.
But I got it. I hid the stripes with spots, or as the "Helen Bress" book "Inkle Weaving" calls it a speckled background...although I am not sure it is the same technique at all.
Just in time for forth of July! Not my best work...but I can live with it!
