The Danskbrogd Series

Five pieces are completed in my exploration of the Xs of danskbrogd. The inspiration piece was a coverlet from the mid 1850s, from southern Norway near Kristiansand.  (Read more about danskbrogd in this article from the Norwegian Textile Letter.) I laminated a photo of the piece, and it was never far from the loom, often taped to the top of it.  As I finished the pieces, they were hung nearby, and they became instructional, too.  Which pattern bands were successful? How should I modify an aspect of an earlier piece for the new one underway?
