A swirl of dolphins in a deep blue sea.
Of all the sea critters I put into a bathroom mural, many years ago, for the neighbours' children, the dolphins are almost certainly the ditsiest. Any apparent glitches in the repeat are caused by a Spoonflower bug which squashes the image when applying rulers. See their undamaged version of the repeated image using the embed link.
Other colours, stylings, sizes and orientations are available on request and you can even ask for a combination of several designs together.

Does that make this a dolphin swarm interrupted by something even bigger and badder ... :-o

I like this one too! It reminds me of those pictures you see of fish swarms interrupted by dolphins...
I had to darken the greys just a tad as a compromise between the paleness of printing on the new Kona and the levels on the original quilting cotton and sateen.

Some tessellations definitely do have more flow than others. A lot of it is down to the underlying group symmetry and, of course, how curvy the dividing edges are. But I do generally prefer the ordered look unlike the normal population - which is why standard fabric manufacturers seem so inadequate to me and why I've been looking for a Spoonflower for 4 decades.
I like your dolphins. It's hard to keep a tessellation from looking somewhat stiff, it's just the nature of the beast. I think it's harder to get a ditsy, or any scattered pattern, to be balanced without being stiff so that it has a nice, relaxed, flow.
Thanks. From my point of view, though, a ditsy can never be as well-balanced as a tessellation.
so nicely balanced!
Dolphins have an inbuilt cuteness advantage. :-D
lovely dolphins... this fabric is so cute!
Thanks. The original mural only had a couple of dolphins in it but most of the other creatures involved had a strong orientation to them (eg through clinging to undersea rocks) which didn't really fit with being in a ditsy pattern.
These dolphins are so well done and you've managed the flow that you wanted beautifully!
Well the usability thing is going to be very much in the hands of the user - given that different people have completely different uses for fabric.
wonderful!!! it makes a great and usable fabric!!! :)
Thanks. I particularly wanted them to flow well.
I love how the dolphins smoothly repeat on this one! They are so cute.
With them all being essentially the same critter (in slightly different poses etc), I had to be careful to avoid them stacking. If you look at the wider views (eg 1 yard) you should see a vaguely vine/leaf-like swirl rather than strong lines in any direction.
this is nice! i like the simplicity of the colors & just having dolphins repeat! good ditsy print.
