Last week I shared my 3 blocks from one concept where I started with an initial candy corn block and then used the block to create the sashing and smaller individual candy corn blocks. All with no additional drawing required.

A few of you also posted some modified quilts in the Learning EQ Facebook group. It so fun to see different ideas using the same starting block.
