These magnets, called rhombic tiles, can be assembled in many ways to “tessellate”, or completely cover the surface with no gaps or overlaps. You can also fit these tiles together to create an aperiodic "Penrose tiling" which never exactly repeats its pattern no matter how large a design you make. When you do that, all the circles and line segments on the tiles will match up perfectly.
