Grace is one the very finely detailed pieces by Irvin. This piece is a Trampas Vallero style because it has the four eight pointed stars in the corners and one star in the center. He has added a lot of interesting details that make it a pleasure to look at, there are just so many lovely variations of color and pattern. Most of it is geometric pattern, but there are flowers, and there is a hamsa in it, and even flames. It is made of acid dyed merino-silk and gold metallic thread. This is much finer than most of what we do, with a weft count of 64 (as opposed to the normal 26), but it uses the usual 8 ends or inch of Chimayo blankets. The size is similar to blankets in the 1800s.
