. . . what was I thinking??

I no sooner pressed "Publish" for my last blog post when I was struck by two flashes of insight. I didn't like the "haphazard" look of the first block I made, but I LIKE the "ordered scrappiness" of these blocks. The first four blocks used 90 degree rotations but I hadn't looked at 180 degree rotations (there are a few more variations to take a look at).

Here's variation 5, with all four patches facing the same direction:

Here's variation 6, with the lower two patches rotated 180 degrees:

Here's variation 7, with the left two patches facing upright and the right two patches rotated 180 degrees:

Here's variation 8, with the upper left and lower right patches facing upright and the upper right and lower left patches rotated 180 degrees:

Thank you for bearing with me during my absence . . . it feels good to be back.


  1. Of this bunch, I like variation 6, but I still like the last one in your first post with these blocks, with all the light green in the center.

    BTW, I'm Elizabeth. Just found your blog. Nice to 'meet' you.

  2. I'm pleased to meet you too, Elizabeth . . . I'm glad you're here.
