Page sponsored pattern by

  • Artichoke Flower- Grows wild in South Europe and is now available as a stained glass pattern. Life is good!
  • Baroque Border- Pattern may be better of printing it and using it to trim the top of the wall paper in your Baroque bathroom. Detail Alert!
  • Baroque Shamroque- Play on the word "shamrock". Pattern is a repeated square design by
  • Botanical Rococo- Heavily detailed 2 fold design by Chantal.
  • Bougainvillea Hexagon- Making this into stained glass may be harder than trying to pronounce it. Inspired from the domes of the 14th Ramadan Mosque in Iraq.
  • Candide- Name given to pattern adapted from an operetta with music composed by Leonard Bernstein.
  • Camellia- Art Nouveau pattern with white camellias.
  • Chauve-Souris- "The Bat". I'm working hard here but am drawing a blank. Looks like you're on your own.
  • Cherry Wood- Structure Alert! Proceed with caution.
  • Chippendale- No, not what you think ladies... This is the furniture style we're talking about.
  • Classical Window- Nice example of a repeated design option. The pattern itself has multiple direction elements.
  • Clover Charm- The second example shows 3 times the charm if one wasn't enough for you. A bit busy multiplied but aesthetically interesting.
  • Cornouiller- "The Male Dogwood" You learn something new every day! One of my favorite patterns in this category. Minor structural issues can easily be fixed.
  • Consumed From Within- Are we just fishing for cliche's? Nah...
  • Crewel Embroidery Window- May I suggest to keep this pattern away from glass. To do otherwise would certainly be cruel. Excessive detail alert!
  • Egyptian- I won't even try to be polite describing this pattern. That would be disingenuous. I will say it is quite colorful...
  • Eight of Diamonds- Contemporary stained glass pattern by Chantal.
  • Empire Circus- Aesthetically pleasing but rather heavily detailed.
  • Fancy Fern- Proceed with caution.
  • Fence Repeat- I'll be nice and just say... Yes, it does repeat.
  • Fleur de Lys- Nice stained glass design using Fleur de Lys by Chantal.
  • Flytrap- Yes I'm serious... That is the real name of this pattern. I blame creativity gone wild.
  • Fronds- The definition is a large leaf but all I can see is a few little ones with itsy-bitsy daisies mixed in. Excessive detail alert!
  • Garden of Love- Pattern contains use of popular design accent from other stained glass patterns by Chantal.
  • Gate- I'm a bit disappointed with such a small title given to a pattern with a gazillion pieces.
  • Gatekeeper- Intricate Annabelle or French Victorian styled design.
  • Gothic Square- Small design flaws that create weakness issues. Can be corrected.
  • Gothic Wheat- Formal styled pattern from Chantal.
  • Graceful- A stretch of a name for this pattern. I'm trying my best to be nonobjective here. Structure and Detail alerts!
  • Heart of Fern- Not to be confused with Heart of Burn you may encounter trying to do this one. Excessive detail alert!
  • Hyalody- Not quite sure about this pattern except that it is square. May be a type error?
  • I Am On My Way- Warm up the beans and keep the outside light on.
  • I Never Lied To You- I swear I'm not naming my patterns from popular cliches.
  • It Was Destiny- And I never saw it coming...
  • Kelmscott Manor- Named from the limestone home of William Morris, founder of the Arts & Crafts Movement located in the Cotswold village of Kelmscott, Oxfordshire, England.
  • Kingdom Hearts- Contemporary styled stained glass pattern in a square frame.
  • L'Arrache-Coeur- Something that "tears your heart out" is the English/French translation. What's the translation to tear your hair out I wonder?
  • Mahogany- Now who came along and erased all of those important break lines? Structure Alert!
  • Mayan Spaceship Window- Didn't the Mayan's also do hallucinating drugs? One of my favorite and really deserves the "gotta make a stained glass pattern" for that theme award.
  • Meant To Be Broken- No argument here.
  • New Victorian- Surely nothing like the old Victorian.
  • Organic Hearts Window- Design does appear to have vines twisting about. That's organic enough for me...
  • Padauk- I'm guessing the title was given to resemble the wood color? Design Alert! Must be modified to work for stained glass.
  • Palace of Glass- Art Nouveau styled pattern by Chantal.
  • Palindrome- Left to right or right to left... It really doesn't matter where you start. It's the same.
  • Periwinkles- Chantal doing what she does best... Designing patterns your fingers can ache for. Attractive pattern but heavily detailed.
  • Pillar- I guess you might call that tall thing down the center a pillar. Don't hold me to it though...
  • Protomodernist- I confess... I had to google the title of this pattern. I'm still confused but not half as to why this pattern was given the name. May be an action figure some day. Who knows?
  • Rococo Revival- More than rococo will need reviving if you decide to actually make this into stained glass.
  • Rose des Vents- English translation: "Compass Rose". Possibly it means hodgepodge elsewhere?
  • Sadness in the Hall of Mosses- I really should label these designs with creative names. I guess I just did...
  • Shamrock Tartan- Shamrock petals on a field of crisscrossed vertical and horizontal bands of various colors.
  • Simplicity- Needs no further description. Nice and easy contemporary stained glass pattern.
  • Steel Swan Square Dance- And I thought they only swam around...
  • The Oracle Is Now Silent- AKA The lips are sealed. Design leaves me speechless so it must be rightly named.
  • Thirty One Faversham Road- Can be seen clearly from 30 Faversham Road.
  • Tulip Bouquet- Attractive design in a circle layout and Victorian flair.
  • Tulip Vase- 13 standing tall and one looking at you to ease the artist's triskaidekaphobia.
  • Tragedy in Room 19- The incident is still under police investigation.
  • Trinity- Contemporary stained glass design from Chantal.
  • Urn- Detailed pattern with an urn and baby tulips amongst some other undefinable accents.
  • Victorian- Pattern of the month by the Larkins. I suspect it was drawn with a spirograph.
  • Victorian & Art Nouveau Gallery- Computer generated stained glass panel designs by Lion_elle. Nice!
  • Victorian Curlicues- A slight issue with the center vertical line may need to be addressed here.
  • Victorian Doors- Pair of panel patterns. Some structural issues should be looked at before construction. offered by StainedGlassers.
  • Victorian Shamrock- Transom panel with 2 shamrocks.
  • Victorian Square- Simple looking stained glass design that's easy to do.
  • Victorian Style Hummingbirds- Mirrored design with 2 types of flowers. The hummers must be at the neighbors feeder.
  • Victorian Pomegranate- 2 panel set suggested for window panes.
  • Victorian Tulip- Pattern has a Victorian garlic highlight to balance off the tulip.
  • Victorian Window #1- Stained glass pattern copied from an antique window. Avoid butting up curves to borders to eliminate a heavy line.
  • Victorian Window #2- Looks close to the original. Pattern still needs to address the distance needed between the curved pieces and straight border to work for lead.
  • Victorian Window #3- Close again but falls short with a poor line flow near the bottom and heavy vertical bars in the center.
  • Victorian Window #4- A few thin inner border structural issues but otherwise OK.
  • Victorian Window #5- A bit more attention is needed to the center oval and how it is delicately pointed in the original panel and lopsided lines here and there.
  • Victorian Window #6- A few chopped curves need to be fixed. Hey... Where did that line come from in the middle?
  • Victorian Window #7- Top diamond in center is curved in original and the oval issue is back.
  • Winchester Mystery House- You may have to go to Winchester's home to find the answer.
  • Wrought Iron- Elaborate "formal" stained glass pattern. Notice "elaborate" was spelled with a capital "E".

More to come...
