Mid-Century Square Pattern Fabric Swatch

Squares, oblongs, circles and similar basic shapes have been a mainstay of pattern design and this trend, as today, was reflected mid-century.

The design here is based on squares rotated 45 degrees with a contrast false stitch edging to create the pattern and give them some interest. Although not a technique developed midcentury it was used in that period and before and is probably in use today. The effect is a pleasant one of making the eye see all the pattern almost at once and this gives an overall view which makes the fabric ideal for cushions and curtains.

There are, in fact, two colour variations shown here. The difference between them is not great but it is enough to give the patterns a noticeable difference and make them individual.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and my other work on my Flickr page which is here.
