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.
