From Liz: Please help me figure this out. I am making a blanket the directions call for a piece of material measuring 72"X45". Instead of one piece I'd like to make a patchwork quilt but the squares need to equal 72"X45". Centered on the bottom of the longest edge is an 18" square. Answered by Harley Weston.

Tessellations

From Lindsay: What is the word that means a shape repeated over and over again to make something like a quilt pattern? Note: I'm pretty sure it is either a fractal or tesselation. Could it be that the pattern itself is a fractal but the entire quilt would be a tesselation? Answered by Chris Fisher.
