Sunshine tessellation

Sunshine tessellation, own design.


The molecule is 6×6 grid units, so normally 3×3 molecules would require an 18×18 grid. Since folding power-of-two grids is much more convenient than others, I skipped one grid unit at the edge from all but the central molecule which allowed me to use a 16×16 grid and resulted in a pinwheel-like shape for the finished tess instead of the conventional square one would normally end up with.
