Hello Zuhaib, if you want to use matchprop on hatches the "donor" is got to be very well setted at the first attempt.
First set a hatch correctly without doing a hatch and then modify the properties, do a hatch with direct settings and erase it utill you've got one correct, the and only then you can use that hatch as a 'donor'.

Use the MATCH PROPERTIES tool.

Start by clicking on the Home tab > Properties panel > Match Properties.  Find.
Select the object from which you want to match properties (ex. - a previously used hatch pattern).
Select the objects to which you want to copy the properties, then press Enter.

Zuhaib you will do a hatch OK to you by setting the properties when doing it but maybe the result won't be good at first.
If you modify the hatches with the properties pannel ( Ctrl+1 ) then the MATCHPROP will paste the very first settings.
That's why you should "work" on the hatches settings to be correct at the first try ( mainly scale and angle ).
When you have a "correct" setting, the matchprop will work directly copying the hatches that you see on the "donor" hatches.

That misalignment of pieces in the right-side pattern looks like a simple problem of the Hatch origin being very far away from its content, which can result in that kind of thing with patterns that involve non-orthogonal pieces (because of rounding to a limited number of decimal places in the angles and origin points and pen-down/pen-up cycles).  Try setting the origin of the target Hatch within it or at least a lot closer to it.

OK Kent but as the hatches are done in the model space and not seen from viewports the origins must at each corner of the 2 rectangles that I suppose to be of the same size, correct or not ?

Not necessarily at a corner, but yes, if the patterns should "sit" in the same relationship to the rectangular outline of each, then each one's origin should be at the same place in relation to its rectangle [a corner, the middle, whatever puts the "graining" part of interest where they want it].

Kent and the others, now that the hatches have "grips" ( 4 in the case of those rectangles ) we can even copy them and re-grip or strech them, etc...
In some cases when hatching isn't working easily and for some repetive hatching I would make a "bank" of hatches with 3, 4, 5, 6, etc... grips to copy, re-grip, stretch.
And what I said about making a good hatch at the very first try otherwise the MATCHPROP won't work fine I experienced it years before today.
When I do a first hatch on a file, if it's not OK for me ( mainly scale and angle ) I erase it and do the settings for it to be OK directly AND NOT MODIFIED WITH THE PROPERTIES PANNEL ( Ctrl+1 ) until i's good.

I did that . But after using (MATCHPROP) matching the properties, the hatch is not proper as it should be.
