Ever since I was in high school and took an art class, I have loved tessellations. This is the Merriam Webster definition "a covering of an infinite geometric plane without gaps or overlaps by congruent plane figures of one type or a few types." What??? Ok, some examples would be a four patch repeated over a quilt, 1000 pyramids, diamonds, hexagons, rectangles, etc.
There is a man, M. C. Escher, http://www.mcescher.com/, who was the KING of tessellations. Check this out:
Totally Cool! This man was a mathmatician but used the formulas to make art. Check out the website.
Ok, so I was looking at a tesselation and wondered if I could make the block in EQ6. Not like I would ever make this quilt but it is fun to play around. Here is the block:
Here is the quilt with a straight set:
Here is the quilt on point:
Here it is with some color and set in the baby blocks quilt:
