Pins Swatch Rotated 90 Degrees

There are some designs that appeared mid-century and which seem to have been almost lost in the passage of time between then and now.

This pattern is based on midcentury ideas that appeared around the 1950s and which I always was attracted to and which I have used several times as the basis for modern day designs. The background is lovely poppy red while the ‘pins’ are mustard and court grey – the ‘shafts’ being daybreak and chocolate. These are all colours from the British Standard which was one of the palettes used in the UK at that time.

Some of the mustard pins are double-headed to from a cross with a long almost horizontal pin below in order to give some structure and a way to the pattern whether this way or at 90 degrees. To help see this I have included a ‘sideways’ swatch.

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