Knapp's unique grid system allows you to draft star blocks accurately at any size. Included are instructions for drawing 35 blocks and for five projects. Also included are a pull-out pattern section, a glossary of terms and 'tricks of the trade.'
(Quilters Newsletter, June/July 2013)

Star blocks are an eternal favourite of quilters and in this book Mary shares her technique for drafting star blocks accurately at any size using her grid system. Included are 35 star designs and five projects, as well as loads of helpful tips and clear diagrams. (Australian Quilters Companion, Summer 2013)

Star blocks have always fascinated me, but because they look so complex I have avoided them. According to this book, you don't need any complicated calculations to achieve beautiful, complex-looking designs. There are 35 blocks to choose from and 5 projects using the pre-drawn grid which is supplied with the book. I found the grid system very complicated, but then for those of you who enjoy a mathematical conundrum and are very interested in the piecing side of quilting, this is a very comprehensive book. (Fabrications Quilting For You, April/May 2013)
