This is pattern FKOQR 1-1-1-4M. It is a 4-shape tessellation, though I have combined all four of the shapes into one. I shaded the design in two colors.

Color and arrange four patches to make two 4-patch blocks as shown below. The lower right patch in each block is a mirror-image of the other three patches.

Alternate block A and block B like a checkerboard.
