    I'm guessing this would be a good place to put this. If anyone would like me to, I can weave them a tartan using MSPaint. If they just leave the thread count here, I can weave it. If anyone would like me to teach them how to weave a tartan using MSPaint, I can upload a tutorial.

    Anyway, here's an idea of what it'd look like. This is the official tartan of Massachusetts.

    Interesting...are we assuming Scots are behind the settlement of New England here?

    No, these are OTL weaves.

    I'll need the thread count and the exact colours.

    Cool...never realized there were State Tartans.

    What's Virginia's? Texas? Cali?

    I'll post them tomorrow. The site I'm using to get the thread counts only allows five thread count requests per day.

    I used the wrong weave on these tartans. I used an Oxford weave instead of a twill weave. Here they are with the correct weave.

    ah well, you see real Scottish tartans don't have those, because they're historical and nothing was standardised.

    For example, all the pictures below show the same Anderson tartan.

    Well, the Anderson tartan is registered in the official registry and has an official thread count and such.

    Here's the Rhode Island one redone properly.

    Here you go, Thande. This is what the tartan looks like according to the official register.

    Misread the Massachusetts tartan thread count. Here is the correct one.

    Someone requested Virginia's tartan. Here it is, and it's by far the most complicated pattern I've seen so far.

    :eek: Aye, hurts the eyes, lad. Rather "eastery" with the pastel and purple, really.
