    here is a link thru another post w/ a link to exuberated color -
    http://waynekollingersquiltblog.blog...l/Tessellation
    Its the easiest explanation on how to make complicated looking designs using a 9 patch grid system. I think tesselated quilts are really beautiful and I always wanted to make one, but thought they would be too hard. He makes it easy! Its just taking squares and triangles, mirroring them and maybe a twist or 2 with an offset - share t

    I think tesselated quilts are really cool and have seen some awesome ones...fun to play with a single shape and see what you can come up with.

    Wow, this site is awesome! So many different ways to make quilts...he's a genius! At least he is to me! I never think about putting different blocks together to make a different design.

    This is a website with an interactive tessellation generator that lets you design your own tessellations using squares, triangles, or Escher shapes in different colors. It's great fun. Try it! http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/tess/tess.htm

    Now that is just too cool. Being a newbie, sometimes it's hard for me to see the pieces within the pattern. This makes it so easy. On my first try I created something I like. Unbelievable!
