Here is the beginning of my next art piece. I have based it on the previous sampling. Go here to see that.

Art Piece 5 Begun

As in the sampling, I am using just two colors:  a medium dark blue for the background and a light yellow for the foreground.  The first block (at the bottom) is an introduction. The yellow is on treadle 3, and the treadle groupling of 3-8 is treadled four times.

Then the design begins.  The first block of the design (second from the bottom) is treadled with yellow on treadle 8;  the second block with yellow on treadle 7 and the third block with yellow on treadle 6.  The treadle grouping of 3-8 for each block is repeated 8 times, not the 4 times I did in the sampler. This constitutes, in essence, the bottom border.

What comes next will be the center portion, which will be treadled quite differently.
