Modern Monday Material

Glossary of pattern names - Cute DecorNot's fabric, but you know that alliteration just had to be!

I do remember my mom and so many other seamstresses of her day calling it material.  I must have been in my 30's before the word fabric stayed in my head. Now when I hear a little lady of a certain age say material, I can't help but smile.

For starters, here's a really nice little glossary of fabric patterns. 

I'm betting that if you know fabric, most of them are likely familiar with the terms, but look all the way down.  What is vermicular, I've only ever known as loops or stipples. I seems I could be wrong: vermicular is the correct name, but only because that is the scientific word for worms.  Hmm, I think I'll stick with loops.  

These photos are all from the same Pinterest board by Modern Quilts Unlimited.  We are lucky to have the quilt shop near us!

I still call it material sometimes - got the habit from my mum.
