Now here’s something you don’t see often — a diamond brick repeat. They are two colorways of the same feedsack, from the collection of kimmymade (shop) on Flickr. I should have covered brick repeats right after half-drops, since they are so similar. If you imagine a perfect grid, in a half-drop alternating columns are staggered by a half of one repeat; in a brick repeat the alternating rows are staggered by a half of one repeat. Like a wall of bricks. But I propose we change the term to “half-slide” because it sounds like a funky new dance sensation.
So let’s do a week of brick/half-slides before moving on to diamond’s fat round sibling, the ogee.
