A complex arrangement of large blue and pink floral patterned triangles that originate in each of the four corners and connect with a center wreath of a repeating pattern of blue and black teardrops. The very center of the piece is made of pink parallelograms that connect at their tips and branch out in a windmill pattern towards the border. Smaller black triangles emanate from the wreath to the border as well. Small and large white triangles fill in the rest.
