The center pattern is found on a square tilted to diamond shape. The blue center flower head has white branches of leaves extending on all four sides on a black background. The border pattern is made up of four triangular shaped corners on a white background. Each display is a single blue flower on a stem with green leaves extending from each side. A grouping of this tile pattern shows a lovely 2nd pattern of four blue flowers pointing inward to form a decorative square backed in white. As you gaze at this grouping of 9 tiles, other motifs will be seen in black as the lines link with the blue flowers.
