The name of a repeated tessellating design, like the one I have used in this design, is called an 'Ogee' pattern in Arabesque design. It took me a few weeks to get the design of these blocks right; initially I came up with lots of really complicated ways to create this motif, but in the end it was so simple - funny how sometimes a design process can take so long and then the outcome can be so easy to make!
The pattern for the lantern shape motif is based on a granny hexagon pattern, but I have made a few changes to come up with the curved design the tessellates.
