“All Points Patchwork is like an extensive technique manual, a resource to help you dream up thousands of different English paper pieced projects! You probably know all about English paper piecing (EPP) in terms of “hexies,” but Diane’s book teaches you how to do this technique with diamonds, triangles, octagons, pentagons, curved-edge shapes and more. The book features nearly thirty project inspirations, 84 pattern diagrams and over 300 detailed images.” — Sew Mama Sew

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It has a good selection of templates to photocopy in the back. The only thing that surprised me is that if you look very closely at the 2 3/4" isosceles triangles sample page there are some minor imperfections with the shapes not lining up - they are still very usable, but I was surprised it made it to print like that (there were a few other sample pages with even more minor imperfections like line width varying).
Anyways, if you enjoyed the sample online then you will probably enjoy this book even more in person.
