From a total of 9 squares, 8 are shown below. Draw the missing square.

The missing one looked as such:

|  :      |
|  :   ...|
|  :   :  |
|  :...:  |


The nine squares together make up a continuous path made up of the dotted lines.


Here is a picture:

enter image description here
The eight given pieces make a 3x3 with a hole in the centre when you place them together so their edges match. The only possible tile that fits the hole and has a line going through all four of its quadrants is the one shown at the bottom of the picture.

    $\begingroup$ How were you able to construct a 9th piece with exactly the same drawing style and coloring? It makes me think the puzzle is not an original and you were able to find the solution elsewhere? $\endgroup$
