Cross-sections through apples in symmetry group p4gm using an arrangement based on a semi-regular grid of squares and triangles.
Cross-sections through apples in symmetry group p4gm using an arrangement based on a semi-regular grid of squares and triangles. Currently displaying just green-skinned apples in non-centred cell formation. The colours are a subset of the synergy0002 palette to coordinate with other synergy0002 designs from the Synergy Challenge Project.

Sorry to doubt you Sef - have just looked at it in the Quick View and it is CLEARLY PERFECT - but yesterday when I first looked at it the Quick View was not available for it (and for several other designs published at the same time) so I couldn't have that closer look then.

What I really like most about the symmetry chosen for this pattern is that it gives the visual effect of randomness in yardage because of the way it forces your eyes to move around the image.
Of course not! You know Spoonflower's image mangler better than that. They ruin nearly all my display images - typically with the rulers but also by adding spurious reflections. It prints perfectly. But no potential buyer is ever going to believe that.
Very nice... but is the repeat a little bit out of alignment?
Wow, the green makes my mouth water. Citrusy, tart.

Unfortunately, it's not really the most sensible way to cut up an apple. So I don't often get to see this view. I was planning to have another go some time soon (instead of working solely from memory) and might then try to refine the precise dimensions a bit or add some extra tissue layers (depending on whether I think it helps or hinders the artistic balance). At least the S43 grid with its 4g symmetry respects the apple's pattern as much as possible (given that 5-fold symmetry doesn't really exist in a plane repeat).
oh, very nice! a great balance of negative and positive space and the repeat really makes the whole thing dance.... and I've always loved the star of seeds inside the apple.
