|Some symmetry designs for: Chasing Squares|
Here is a growing collection of designs formed with the Chasing Squares set, showing the immense variety of symmetry types and themes the set invites you to explore. Like a kaleidoscope, new patterns emerge every time you play. Most of these were solved by visitors to our art booth; several are by our staff, Eileen, Sue, Meshele, Eric and Kate. Check out these categories, and if you find some interesting new patterns of your own, send us digital pictures of them and we'll add them to this gallery. Send to: Chasing Squares Designs.

Chasing the squares: We're still searching for improved scores. Here's a pretty solution of 14 traceable squares all outside the tray (left) and a 24 (right) with squares divided both in and out of the tray. White areas are empty, "negative" spaces. Both were solved by talented visitors to our booth.
