Wittenbauer's Parallelogram

Suppose that the sides of a (black) quadrilateral are trisected. Form a new (magenta) quadrilateral whose sides are defined by the four pairs of points of trisection on either side of the vertices of the original quadrilateral; it is always a parallelogram.
Drag the vertices of the black quadrilateral.
