Some friends and I will be gathering again this Saturday to learn more about English Paper Piecing (EPP) and will be working on a Lucy Boston pattern - Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC).  (You can find a link to the POTC pattern book the end of this post).

Since I'm new to all this and need all the help I can get, I decided to shop for a 1" acrylic honeycomb hexagon template to trace and cut out my fabric.  If I use a paper template, I won't be able to see the fabric pattern through it which could skew my placement somewhat.  With this acrylic piece, I can place it over my fabric pattern and see exactly what will fit.

I had heard that Paper Pieces had what I needed for a reasonable price, so I completed my order before dawn on Saturday morning.  The site says that all orders are processed by hand and can take 5-10 days to ship here in the U.S., so I hoped that I hadn't ordered it too late.

It's now Monday - my package from Paper Pieces was in my mailbox today!  I can't believe they got it shipped out early Saturday and it arrived aready.  They also included a colorful catalog so that I can shop from my chair when I'm away from my computer (which might be a dangerous thing).

Located in Paducah, Kentucky, Paper Pieces also carries books, patterns and kits, packages of pre-cut paper pieces, and other notions and sewing/quilting supplies.  If you need EPP supplies, Paper Pieces is the place to go.

Hope you don't mind, needed to test something with regard to my signature and some changings with google.
