Line up patterns are patterns whereby lines are formed in the pattern. These lines are unintentional and are made by the motif, design or shapes repeating either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. These patterns can be made in various colours, scales and types of repeats. Generally line-up patterns are printed onto the piece of fabric after it has been manufactured.
