EPP heaven. and a giveaway.

So as you may have noticed, I have been on a roll with quilting books.
I just can't stop it seems.
I noticed that Martingale has a new website and you can buy books directly from them.
I am really liking this option versus buying on Amazon.
I know, I need to support my local quilt shops...
I know, but in my defense I rarely get to drive to see Joyce (she is 75 miles away)!

So how could I stop buying new books, when a new book comes out all about English Paper Piecing?
I mean that is my favorite way to hand piece....well hand piece any small quilt.

Bloom Creek's Vicki (cool name) has really out done herself.


I think this book is packed with super cute projects.
She gives basic instructions about how to paper piece as well as little tips.
So many choices, I am not sure which one to start first....

but I am pretty sure I want to start this one.
I had even picked out my fabrics and all....
then I got side tracked with our spring break road trip and didn't get back to it.
I have it all sitting on my cutting mat....so hopefully this weekend.
It's like every other quilting I start...
it's anyone's guess when I will start it!

So about the giveaway.....
 Martingale was cool enough to give me a copy of the new English Paper Piecing book to give to one of you.
Leave me a comment with just one word - your favorite English Paper Piecing shape.
For example:
hexagon
triangle
jewel etc.
Just one word for your comment.
Also make sure I have a way to  contact you via email :)
I will be randomly selecting a winner on
April 19th.

I first didn't want to enter the giveaway, thinking I would probably not make anything from it. But, when I saw the cute small projects, I thought: yes, that's something for me (o:
I'm used to paperpiece with hexies, so that is my favorite, but seeing the small quilt you are going to make, I think those shapes would be interesting too. Think out of the box (o:
