Twill sampler sample

The twill sampler is off the loom. It’s always intriguing to see what the different treadling combinations look in the different threadings. 

For instance, the straight twill in the left section looks very different from the M’s and W’s section (which is next to last to the right). When they work out looking nice here, I try to make a note next to that treadling combination.  

Now the decision of how to finish it. Leave it plain? Practice my hemstitching? Tat an edging? Fringe or no fringe. It’s a sampler, so I’m leaning to just leaving it.

Incidentally, I’m partial to M’s and W’s as those are my initials prior to marriage.
