I used Doug Leko's folded corner ruler but any sew-and-flip method would work.
Press alternate blocks center seams up or down.
Sew into pairs then into four-block-units.
Sew three of the units into a row
Sew 7 rows
Press alternate rows left or right
Sew rows together; I pressed each row upwards.
|I like the secondary lozenge shape that shows up where four blocks meet|

Tile is based on an actual tiling pattern often called Portuguese Tile. There are several commercial patterns out there but I drew mine from an actual tile floor.
Usually it is made in two colors. It works well with this solids on prints style.
I started this quilt on LeClaire in 2017. I returned to it in December and it has been a really pleasant quilt to work on these past couple of months.
My design. Use at your pleasure.
