Designs by sef
Thankyou both. I had to go out the evening that the September themes were announced and my sketches for this were naturally turning into tessellations, so I let them and then picked one for tidying and uploading. I'm very driven by mathematical/crystallographic symmetry groups in my layouts and arrangements of things even when not tessellating. So, while that's not exactly "innovative" in historical terms (being a fundamental property of the universe!), they will tend to look rather different from the typical ditsy or non-ditsy block print designs currently in vogue.
Well I was deliberately trying to choose the colour schemes from our various sets which I thought would work the best for this one - and putting the other ones into the other spiral types. Having spare spoondollars for proofing does make a big difference to the number of slots I "waste" on repeat options.
