45-degree tiling using squares

The following set of pieces show how a 45-degree tiling can be created using squares.

This is similar to using the 30-degree pieces. In this tiling, however, the thin tile becomes infinitely thin, and the fat tile becomes a square. This results in the tiling made up of all squares.

The following shows diamonds D0 to D4.
