4-block quilt block pattern kites

(55cm square fighters)

These larger 4-block fighters are defnitely not built for speed flying, but they are great for precision control and can perform most freestyle tricks. Although they are very time-consuming to make (each sail is made up of 50-80 separate panels), they really look superb in the sky, and are guaranteed to attract attention.

The Old Black Road series - based upon a pattern derived from the traditional Road to Heaven block.

This series of kites has been designed using my own method of mathematical transforms - thus all of the kites in the series have been built by using different mathematical grids to make templates to reproduce the Old Black Road Pattern.
