Hexagons, Diamonds, Triangles, and More

I am slowly working on my English Paper Piecing and really enjoying it. 
With the help of Hexagons, Diamonds, Triangles, and More I have even started thinking about future projects. This book is not about English Paper piecing (there is actually fantastic instructions for machine piecing and sewing y-seams) but there is great inspiration for paper piecing.
 There is a lot of information and ideas packed into this book as you can see from the contents page.
How you can break the shapes down into smaller shapes is clearly shown
There is instructions for a couple of little projects.
 And a great gallery full of inspiration.
 I think this is one of those books that I will turn to again and again for ideas.

Full Disclosure: I received a copy of the book from Martingale free of charge. All opinions are my own.

Hi, Kate!
I'm tickled pink that you're enjoying my book, "Hexagons, Diamonds, Triangles, and More"! Your patchwork using the Dolly Madison Star looks great!!! I'm a "machine queen", myself, so I piece almost exclusively by machine. I'm delighted that you are using the book and the template patterns inside it for English Paper Piecing! Enjoy, and thanks for your kind words!!
