Default Persevering

Trying to make manly quilts. Found a unique pattern. After arranging and rearranging and recutting, etc, the pattern is in the trash. The pieces are again rearranged. With perseverance I will triumph. The concept is great. With more investigation, it could be a great pattern. It will not become a UFO 🛸.
The top 1/2 is sewn into rows.

What an interesting design. It looks difficult but you're doing well. Does the pattern have a name? Now you knew someone would ask for that, didn't you?

It looks complicated. I can see why you are having difficulties with the design. Reminds me of the signs for radiology departments.

Sometimes it takes a bit of help to conquer a problem.
There are a huge number of skilled quilters on the board who are always willing to give advice.
Good for you to attempt this. Good luck.

Keep perserving as it will be worth it when done. Great pattern though maybe a bit confusing. It will be stunning once you've got it all done and then you'll tell yourself............what was the problem????

I give you a lot of credit. Sometimes patterns can be so frustrating it is better to rewrite it or start over. Your layout looks great so far..........onward........to the finish. Can't wait to see it done.

This pattern reminds me of the Southwest. I agree, maybe arrowheads. So interesting in concept too. The finished quilt will be amazing!
