Naming Patterns

Whilst I’ve been away I’ve been drawing a lot of new patterns based on things I’ve seen – carpets, architecture, all sorts of things! :o)  I’ve included some of these in the next update to the app which led to the interesting challenge of names!

I’ve discovered in the past that sometimes when I create a new pattern, some one else has already made it and given it a name.  In my app you’ll find this pattern:

ocstar-thumb

ocstar

After I’d added this my friend said, “Hey, that looks just like Quiltz” and there was my pattern, already drawn by Kym Barlow!  Her steps are even identical to mine!  What a surprise! :o)

I often browse Tangle Patterns to check to see if a pattern I’ve made has already been named by someone else, and I try to use those names where I can to make it easier for people to look up the patterns by name for further inspiration :o)

So here are my “new” patterns with their slightly crazy names thanks to Chris :o)  If you recognise any of these patterns as having other names, please do let me know!

beau-thumb

beau

flore-thumb

flore

notti-thumb

notti

ohnoh-thumb

ohnoh

orbz-thumb

orbz

unyun-thumb

unyun

werm-thumb

werm

These will be available in the Doodle Patterns app as soon as Apple approve it – hopefully not too long :o)
