WILDWOOD - a new tangle

This pattern was inspired by a carpet design at the Wildwood Golf and Country Club in Saskatoon. No, I just happened to be out there for an event last spring. :)

I can't claim credit for this brilliant method for obtaining a series of equilateral triangles. That goes to CZT Sandy Hunter and her drawing instructions for Wunderwall (a beautiful tangle pattern). Note that the first set of dots indicate rectangles, not squares.

Here's the how-to for Wildwood:
Then embellish.

To be honest, having drawn these instructions, I actually find it easier to do each triangle individually, as in the lower right corners. I found that if  the dots get lost among the lines, the wavy lines can become confusing.

Here are a couple of tiles using Wildwood.
Tangles: Camelia, Cruffle, Paradox, Tripoli, Wildwood
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Coaster, D'Uni, Wildwood (3 varieties)
