Giveaway - EPP Templates and Papers

My favourite blogger, QuiltJane from Want It, Need It, Quilt! has got a fantastic new giveaway on here to showcase the latest additions to her own range of 'peeper' acrylic templates for English Paper Piecing.

I have used Jane's templates and I love that the centres are cut-out. Fussy-cutting fabric is so easy as you can place the template at exactly the right spot on your fabric's pattern.

Jane's giveway includes a set of Rose Star templates, a set of Ferris Wheel templates, and some elongated hexagons. Oh, and a pack of my die-cut papers too!
Jane and I have coordinated our products, so you'll find that her Rose Star templates match up with my die-cut Rose Star paper pieces. Her Ferris Wheel templates match up with my die-cut 2" square, triangle and hexagon papers, and if you need papers to match the Elongated Hexagons I can electronic-cut them for you.

The giveaway blogpost includes this picture of my first Rose Star blocks, but you may remember that I restarted my Rose Star quilt in a less dramatic colourway. You'll find some photos of my Flora blocks here.
And here's a photo of my still unfinished Faux Wedding Ring quilt. I didn't realise this was the Ferris Wheel block!

The great thing about English Paper Piecing is that once you learn the basics, you can make any block. The Rose Star block is easier than it looks. (I think Jane is going to write a tutorial, but if she doesn't, I can give you some info.)

The acrylic template giveaway is open till Sunday 2nd September (Aussie time). You can find the giveaway here and my coordinating die-cut paper pieces here.

P.S. It has happened again - my emails are playing up - I can receive emails but can't send any!
