Each person brought along her bag of materials when we met together last week. From their bag, they were instructed to make as many finished Nine Squares as they liked. Nine Squares refers to the footprint of each piece, which must consist of nine, 1.5cm squares in any arrangement. Some examples of possible arrangements of squares were provided:
