Repeating seamless patterns: definitions, free samples, links, and how-tos

Seamless Repeating Patterns

Repeating patterns without visible boundaries between motifs. Created by elements of the motif that appear in a regular manner (as in set layout) or artfully extend beyond geometric boundaries of the repeating region (as in interlocking patterns). Blending of neighboring units is another way to achieve seamless repeats.
