Flower of creation design

Came across a nice drawing in my geometry workbook. Thought it might look interesting on fabrics. The constructions starts from seven intersected circles – one is in the middle and six around it. This composition is called flower of creation and symbolizes six days of creation and the seventh day – the day of rest.

The flower of creation pattern is a base for the root three proportional system patterns – 3-, 6- and 12-folds. I wanted to show the effect of tracing paper when the upper layer of pattern is bright and the base fades away.
