Select Repeating from the Fill Tiling drop down list. This forces the darker color to the center and moves the pale yellow color to the outsides.

    NEW USERS: To apply colors to a fill path, select the small box on either end of the fill path arrow and edit the color in the Color Editor. You can also drag and drop colors onto the control handles. You can add intermediate colors by either double clicking on the fill path with the Fill Tool to add a new control point or by directly dragging and dropping a color onto the fill path arrow.
