Tartan and Twill squares all complete

All 16 squares are complete and ready for fulling. After that they go to my friend who intends to make a cushion with them. Currently they are about 5.25 inches square. The final size after fulling should be about 4.5 inches.
There are 8 twill squares. Green is the warp and one of the other three colours is the weft. Here's my favourite in the warm siena brown in a 3/2 twill.
I did two different tartan patterns.
One based on the proportions of a Graham  tartan.
One based on the proportions of a Campbell tartan.
All the ends were left at the edges and caught lightly onto the back afterwards.
