Solstice Squares

Today is the winter solstice 2018 and I happened to be looking for a suitable catchy name for this pattern which is actually called aff391 in my inventory and Solstice Squares seemed appropriate.

The design uses mid-century inspired motifs which are from my collection of small motifs that I use from time to time. I was experimenting with the placement of motifs in order to form a repeated pattern but using the motifs to actually make a shape to be repeated. The simplest shape to make is either a square or a circle and the particular shape used resembles either one or the other. The pattern, as you can see, is a simple one. However simple patterns are often the best ones to look at and are certainly the easiest ones to use as a fabric for making curtains, cushions or similar soft furnishings.

The background is a neutral grey to remind me that I could experiment with backgrounds in order to produce a series of designs for fabric and this is something that I will probably do in the months ahead in 2019.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
