(To review tessellation go to my 17 April 2010 post)
Does this tessellate?
What if I put 4 of the tessellating shapes together rotated?
I get a diamond-shaped pattern.
What if I put 4 of the diamond-shaped pattern together to make an even larger diamond?
I think this is very interesting and it needs a border.
I like this very much. However, I still need to divide the top into individual blocks before I can sew it easily.
I'll do that another day. Right now I'd like to try one more thing.
The appropriate colors can be found by inspecting the above quilt top.
What if I take 12 of this block; repeat some of them and rotate some of them?
I get this quilt top. It is an extended version of the previous one with the edges squared off.
The tessellation I started with is no longer obvious. But so what? When you end up some place you like, where you started from doesn't matter any more.
I am happy with both versions.
