Twill Single Saddle Blanket : Historic : GHT 1946

From the 1880s and forward, weavers would almost always use Twill as the style for weaving saddle blankets as it would create a thicker finished piece.  Fancier designs would sometimes be worn on top of the saddle to give the rider additional cushion, or rolled and tied behind the saddle to be admired. 

The artist of this piece chose to do a two sided pattern with a positive and a negative side.  The gold coloring is from rabbit brush.
