Stuart Hillard is on a mission to help quilters all over the world realize their quilting dreams and prove "it ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it"--one simple shape at a time.

In the follow-up title to the bestselling Use Scraps, Sew Blocks, Make 100 Quilts, Stuart shows you how the easiest of shapes can make extraordinary quilts. The book is divided into five main pattern chapters, each with 20 quilt designs:
One-Patch Quilts--using a single shape or repeated block; Strips and Squares; Triangles; Curves; and Foundation Piecing--creating unique blocks from the easiest shapes using paper foundation piecing.

Alongside the patterns and quilt designs, Stuart has drawn on years of teaching experience to include the ultimate quilting hacks, tips, and tricks. The techniques chapter covers basic skills, design, cutting, paper piecing, easy appliqué techniques, and advice on how to add borders and binding.
