I wanted to show an example of weaving in the colonial overshot pattern called SNAILS TRAIL AND CATS PAW. I wove it in black and white wool, and as you can see it is reversible. Many colonial pattern weavers used the colors bright blue and cream/white and they were beautiful. This is slow weaving, careful counting, and a 3 shuttle weave.
Note: it could certainly pass for modern graphic design.
You will find this weaving pattern in many of the old early American coverlets.
