turned twill

Echoing Parquetry

I've been watching Craig create the panels for his book stand, and the rotated squares seem to have resonated with me. Squares within squares is always a fun idea to play with, so I thought I'd do exactly that. I could get a similar feel to the checkerboard pattern by using one of the classic Scandinavian dräll weave structures, or two-block turned twill. Those Swedes are masterful at taking a rigid framework of blocks and making them flow beautifully from one to another.
