Daily Swatch: Pattern Types – Ogee

The Daily Swatch features a piece of vintage fabric (almost) every day. Themes change periodically — right now we’re in the midst of a series on pattern types — so far we’ve covered block and half-drop, diamonds, and bricks.

Daily Swatch: Cheater Prints

Cheater prints have enjoyed a bit of a revival lately, so it’s high time to look at some vintage examples. I’ve had this theme in mind for some time, so I’m pretty excited about it. Please share your cheater prints in the True Up Flickr pool. The print above is from the collection of doe-c-doe [...]
