Block designs consist of black and white blocks on grid paper, where black
is considered the pattern block and white the background block. Learn how
weavers interpret block designs in color and texture in a variety of different
weave structures. Find out how one weaver used the binary number system and the
textures of 4 shaft huck lace to develop the definitive number of two block designs,
and how these simple designs become the building blocks of more elaborate designs.
