Quatrefoil or how I saw something wrong on the internet and attempted to correct it

On my social media stream I saw a post that included an image titled Home Decor Prints and Patterns Glossary. I found it interesting since I was not familiar with the term and familiar with the patterns. I compared the list with the popular CSS3 Patterns Gallery a site that lists patterns and how can they be made using just CSS. The Quatrefoil was not in it so I made it.

The CSS3 Patterns Gallery is on github so made a pull request with the addition. So far no response. I am sure the site gets a lot of submissions so I don’t count on it.

In a previous version of this site I had a blog that was pretty neglected most of the time. Today I am starting from scratch and declaring that I will publish at least once a week. This declaration is a commitment device. To save face I will make an effort to keep this promise.
