What materials did you use? 3/2 Pearl Cotton

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Got a chance to use the fix for a broken warp thread. Lessons learned: When you notice a weak warp area when winding, don't think it will stand up to tension. When you find you have an extra heddle, don't assume it was a counting error. (I had to go back and re-thread after I had sleyed and tied on the front apron and move the heddle bout by bout over to the center where I had misthreaded. Pearl Cotton is very fragile when you are taking apart the plys to start another bobbin. My trapeze worked great for winding the warp (all 27 1/2 feet of it) alone

27 and 1/2 ft?! My hero! Those are beautiful...are you sure it's "easy"? .....Soon I'll have to give it a try.

How did you make this? I'm a new weaver, but I'm guessing this isn't done on a rigid heddle loom. Is there a way to do something like this with a rigid heddle loom?
