A Simple Tessellation
For You To Ponder
This is my quilt Okotoks/Sheep Creek; it's a simple tessellation. A tessellation is a jigsaw puzzle in which all the pieces are the same shape.
The result is a series of dumbell shapes, some dark and some light, that tessellate.
When you combine a block with its negative you create a design that is larger than the block. The block disappears and the new design takes over.
You don't always get a tessellation when you do this; but you do get some interesting designs. Try it.
