Challenge #38 "Better than a Pair of Ducks"

When I first saw Rick's Paradox tangle I thought it was really cool.  I had some trouble getting it down until I read the tip somewhere, that if you turn your tile with each line that you make it is a lot easier.  Sure enough, that worked and I have been using Paradox a lot whenever I had a triangle shape to put it in.  Wow, it really is a cool tangle!  But wait...then Margaret Bremner/CZT came out with a wonderful tutorial, (check it out here) on Paradox and I had a light bulb moment (a little embarrassed to admit...why have I only limited Paradox to a triangle shape?  You can do Paradox with a square...and so much more.  Wow, this really cool tangle is over the top really cool now!  Thanks Rick for creating Paradox!  Thanks Margaret for the wonderful tutorial!  Thanks Laura for another great challenge!  (Love that you think Pair of Ducks when you hear Paradox-what fun!)

  11. Very nice. I really like the 1st one... Isn't it funny to read the comments and see the variety of tastes. I wonder if I would choose the second one on another day. Both are beautiful.
