    me being a dick..
    some of the check patterns are turned the wrong way in the photos
    mini-check
    window pane
    tattersall
    i think the hounds tooth as well

    it is nice that this young lady posted descriptions of designs.
    I doubt she knows much about the fabric construction.
    otherwise she would have noticed her photo error

    Carl, take a look at the first post again and see if things look better to you now.

    Very good list. I never knew the proper terminology for the "awning".

    Perhaps of use. (Taken from AAAC)

    Butcher stripe is perhaps also worth mentioning. It's somewhere between awning and Bengal in terms of each stripe's thickness.

    I assume then that the convention is that the darker stripe runs vertically and the lighter stripe runs horizontally.

    I've heard the term "bordered stripe" for the lower one. Shadows only fall in one direction.

    Bordered, whenever I've heard the term, almost always refers to something like Bengal width stripes with pinstripes edging each stripe, whereas shadows are the same width.

    YMMV of course
