Clam Shells

Another traditional pattern I love is clam shells. 
I decided to give carving them a try. 
I drew some designs and then tried carving them.

 After carving a few I put them together. I love the pattern!
 The problem with carving clam shells is that you end up with a lot of quarter circle left over pieces. I decided they needed to be carved.

They are okay printed as circles, but I soon found they are even more interesting printed in ropes.

These would be fun to print on fabric!
