Playing with Blocks

Oh Susannah

The Oh Susannah block is symmetrical. As a result I can divided it into 4 identical units.

What if I play with those units and re-assemble them into 3 new blocks?

The unit is a square and has, to no one's surprise, 4 corners.  Corner number 1 was used as the center of the original block.

What if I use each of the other corners in turn as the center of a new block?

I now have 3 new blocks I can play and experiment with.
