In QGIS, I would like to set the fill of a shape to be a pattern repetition of label values (i.e. an attribute of the item).

Is this possible, looking a little like the sketch below (for shapes with ID = 1,2,3)?

On Layer Properties window, select Single Symbol | Fill | Simple fill - Symbol Layer Type- Point pattern fill | Font marker. Then click Data defined override (field) and choose your field.
