Today I would like to design a quilt pattern that tessellates. (If you need a reminder of what tessellation is see my 17 April 2010 post.)
This is an interesting pinwheel, but it won't tessellate. There are three repeated shapes filling the space; there needs to be just one.
This will tessellate because the white shapes and the green shape are identical.
This is definitely a tessellating pattern, one shape repeated over and over.
Is this a tessellation?
Can I improve this?
That this is made using 2 very simple blocks amazes me.
For more tessellation see My Posts by Subject in the sidebar on the right and click on Tessellation.
