In addition ( i know - calm down! two posts in a day!!) I have been exploring the Islamic patterns I loved so much about 4 years ago when I visited Marrakesh - well worth exploring in terms of new fabric patterns I think. In fact, the second one isn't so Islamic but it shares some of the beautiful crisp nature so I thought they'd work well together. Both have been made using cheap foam as opposed to lino - it seems particularly well-suited to rapid results and strong lines - something lino isn't naturally given to reproducing well.
