Here (Miscellaneous Gimp Patterns Zip File) are a set of 11 miscellaneous patterns for your GIMPing pleasure. Download them and install them in your user–level GIMP “patterns” directory. They are useful, of course, for miscellaneous purposes.
Be warned, the zip file is too big to fit on a floppy disk. Contact me if that's an issue for you.
There isn't any finished art to share using these patterns, just this fun Test Sheet image.
