Geometric Fabric defines geometric as
  • Of or relating to geometry and its methods and principles.

  • Increasing or decreasing in a geometric progression.

  • Using simple geometric forms such as circles and squares in design and decoration. Of or relating to properties in algebraic geometry involving algebraically closed fields.

All three of these meanings are well suited to describe geometric, but pay close attention to bullet point three "using simple geometric forms such as circles and squares in design and decoration." It's almost as if when they wrote the definition of geometric they were thinking of the geometric fabric section at has hundreds of fabrics to choose from that represent geometric squares, Circe's, and closed fields. Fabric designers are so creative and must have got straight A's in high school geometry because when you look at the patterns they create it's an amazing use of geometric patterns.
Take a look at Joel Dewberry's Dear Valley Collection and specifically the Mountain Gem fabrics. The pattern has an intricate weave of lines, squares, and angles to form amazing geometric patterns.

Geometric patterns don't have to come in squares and circles. Take a look at Alexander Henry's fabric Hearts to Hearts. This fabric has bright colored hearts that are aligned in patterns to create a simplistic, but artistic geometric pattern.

Geometry is all around us in our everyday lives, but most of us, including myself don't pay close enough attention to notice it. Thankfully, there are very creative people out there, and especially in the fabric designer world that can bring alive amazing geometric fabric to all of us.
