Pair your repeated blocks with plain squares, rotate blocks for a playful spin, or simply line them up row by row. And look how Kim Diehl switched the backgrounds of her star blocks from dark to light (above, bottom right)—now that’s a showstopping quilt, and it’s made with just one repeated block!

This book is packed with inspiration to last you for years to come. We wanted to find a way to give you a peek at each and every quilt in the book, so we made a little video that offers a glimpse:
