Printing Repeats

 I printed these fabrics for no reason other than my own entertainment.  I used a couple of hand dyed pieces that turned out to be an unfortunate shade of pink......I don't really use pink in my work.  Anyway, I thought I could improve them with a bit of block printing.  I love these two blocks that form this terrific pattern of repeats! 
 Notice the bottom piece has two layers of printing - I printed it first with metallic gold and used a different printing block - which hardly shows up at all....  Makes me think I should do more .....maybe in black and white - or something with even more contrast - eh?
