    Thank you to everyone who has helped so far. I was pretty certain that Scottish American tartan would be a modern American tartan, given the red/white/blue central theme, plus the purple.

    So, here are 3 more that need identification, please!

    Yeah. It reminded me of American Heritage.

    Since I don't appear to have the free time to unroll all of these individually and post them for individual identification, maybe you could help pick some out to ID? This is one of several piles I have of scraps.

    Amongst them, I had already posted a couple. I also see the XMTS tartan, Isle of Skye, MacPherson Hunting Ancient, and Highland Granite. But any others you could ID for me would be appreciated.

    Bottom, 4th from the left, looks like MacCallum.

    The two rolls to the right of the MacPherson and above the XMTS look like MacBeth to me.

    You might find this helpful Some of these rolls are too small and the sett too big to be able to confirm the sett without unrolling them.
