After washing and drying, I like the first sample (on the left) the best.  The other samples look too stretched out.  The sample on the left was done with a sett of 20 epi.

Here are some notes for the bigger LEGO overshot project:

Project Stats
Warp: 12/2 cotton in plum
Tabby weft: 12/2 cotton in plum
Pattern weft: 8/4 cotton in aqua

4 yards at warp board

Sett is 20 epi on #10 reed

52 threads per repeat, planning for 6.5 repeats plus 24 threads each side for borders = 385 threads total

19.25" at reed, or about 15.5" across after a possible 20% shrinkage.
