COMMENTS

At stage 0, we start with no Qtoothpicks.
At stage 1, we place a Qtoothpick centered at (1,0) with its endpoints at (0,0) and (1,1).
At stage 2, we place two Qtoothpicks.
The sequence gives the number of Qtoothpicks in the structure after nth stage.
For more information see A187210.
A187213 gives the number of Qtoothpicks added at nth stage.
Note that starting from (0,1), with the first Qtoothpick centered at (1,1), we have the toothpick sequence A139250.
Also, gullwing sequence on the semiinfinite square grid, since a "gull" is formed by two Qtoothpicks. The sequence gives the number of "gulls" (or Gtoothpicks) in the structure after nth stage. See A187220.  Omar E. Pol, Mar 30 2011
