more window patterns in gsp

You'd be right in saying 'hey, these are just a bunch of overlapping squares.' Yes. The only redeeming thing that I can point to is that they are made by following a rule, and the rule is one that is easy to reproduce without using any external measuring device (like a ruler or protractor), only the squares themselves. Think origami: you find midpoints by folding, etc. In this case, GSP is used, but only simple constructions like mid-point finding and segment creating.
The trick is to find a rule that allows you to start with a square and then construct two points that you can base another square on, and then repeat.

These were made from the same window-pattern instructions mentioned here.
