Twisted Ammann Tiling

The following set of pieces show how an Ammann Tiling can be created using 30-degree pattern blocks. The tiling is similar to the Ammann tiling, but has two diamonds.

Using this transform, the following diagrams show how the substitution tiling grows.

The following shows the two diamonds D0 to D3.
