Do They Have a Twelve-Step for This?

I can't seem to stop making patterns...









Those three go together - I'm thinking shower curtain and bathroom stuff, or sheets, pillowcase, and comforter set, for a Jetson-style science-fiction-lover?

This one (below) turned on it's side would make a nice blouse fabric, perhaps, maybe cut cowgirl-style? I'm calling this one "Double Diamond."




Last for now, a variation on one of yesterday's themes.



So far these are all of these patterns are constructed with rectangles and squares. Long ago, I played with tessellation (creating interlocking patterns based on other geometrical forms) thanks to a great tool in a free copy of CorelDraw I acquired along the way, but that software (and the computer that housed it) is long gone. I've been researching Photoshop plug-ins but am yet to settle on anything. Advice is welcome...

I love your patterns. I was just getting ready to do some patternwork and commentary on the comfort of repetition. I know that obsessive feeling. I get it when I paint mandalas.
