Yes, There IS a Pattern Match

Digital ImageAt first glance, this thin irregular stripe on a mottley background appears to have no pattern match. And, in fact, when I tested it, it did look fine if I had hung it without matching the pattern.

But, like virtually all wallpaper patterns, there IS a pattern match. You see, the swirl on the left edge of the first strip has to match up with the other half of the swirl on the right edge of the next strip. Even though it looked OK without matching the pattern, when I took the time to match it perfectly, it just looked a notch or two better.
