I am trying to create a pattern in QGIS that could look like a wall with several bricks but I'm not quite sure I understood the custom dash pattern tool.

When I try to do something like this, the pattern never gets perfect, see the image below. Is there anyone who could advise me something?


  • A bit more information on what you actually did you be nice. Did you create an SVG? Have you used a linear pattern?

You can download the brick symbol or create your own symbol using Inkscape open source software and save the image as SVG, then use Layer Properties -> Style and change the Simple fill to Raster image fill, as you can see below:

You can control the image width as you like depending on your preference.
