Patterns inspired by islamic tilings

For our module on the theory of design, we were set the challenge of creating patterns, in the style of Islamic tiling, without gap or overlap for a practical application. To do this we had to take a square and a triangle, divide them up into sections and then rearrange them to create 6 patterns from the triangle and 6 patterns from the square.

My colours and shapes were inspired by alpine scenes, using shades of cream, blue and pink, with sharp angular shapes, below is the mood board for my patterns showing how I divided the triangle and square.

Here are some of my designs so far from the to four are the triangle rearranged and the final two are from the square.
