Bricks

 

I keep seeing this quilt on Pinterest and Etsy, but I can't figure out how to make it other than in long rows.  I hate sewing long rows.  There must be a way to make it, but with blocks.    

So I grabbed some graph paper during my lunch today and started figuring out how to make it in blocks.  It isn't exactly the same, and the diamonds will be in two sizes, but it would be much easier to put together.   I was thinking of trying it out with some two inch bricks and squares this weekend.  
One more lacrosse game this week to get through.   We lost on Monday and won on Wednesday, tonight is another likely loss, and then it is on the district matches next week.  What a strange season it has been!  We have three injured girls and two out on quarantine, so there aren't many subs, but everyone is hanging in there with a good attitude so far.

What a clever layout you came up with! I love "mapping" out a quilt or even just a block to see if I can figure out how to make it work even if I don't have the pattern. This will make a great scrappy quilt.

I saw a tutorial on Sunday's Hands2Help post about this quilt. The long rows didn't really bother me. I like the block version you've drawn up, too.

I am with you on the row thing, I would much rather sew blocks.
How different high school sports are depending on where you live. In Minnesota the Lacrosse season started this week with our first game next Friday. Love that my son chose to play a new sport over football 5 years ago, don't love so much he chose to be goalie! Praying he gets a senior season in as his junior season was cancelled.

I have that scrappy quilt as the free pattern on my bucket list. Someday... I'll have to admire yours from afar for now.

You should be able to keep all the diamonds the same size if you keep a constant three white bricks between the bottom tip of a diamond and the top tip of the diamond right underneath it. I hope this makes sense to you as it does in my head. Looking forward to your version. ;^)

This looks much more easy and manageble than long rows. Well done,Angela.

I read where someone sewed all the like long rows then attached the rows in order

Quilted twins has 2 patterns for the Mosaic quilt on her website. One is done in rows and the other is blocks. I did it with rows- wish I had known about the blocks then!

Without a pattern it was a good idea to map it out. But looking at the comments you have a couple more options now!

I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ose  who helped me in my life, i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by dr Ose spiritual, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how dr Ose spiritual cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative.

I already gave up on ever getting cured of HSV2 because I have try many treatment none of them work out for me I have be to different hospital they always tell me same thing there is no cure for herpes when i came across a post about Dr momoh, in the net from a lady called Rebecca I contacted him and he reassured me with his herbal medicine which I took according to the way he instructed, that how i was cured. I doubted at first because I have been to a whole lot of reputable doctors, tried a lot of medicines but none was able to cure me. so I decided to listen to him and he commenced treatment, and under two weeks I was totally free from Herpes. I want to say a very big thank you to DR momoh for what he has done in my life. feel free to leave him a message on email dr.momoh9@gmail.com and also WhatsApp him +2347083724098.. or visit his website https://drmomohherbaltreatment.wordpress.com.
