This book looks amazing and since I work in the education system it means much more to me!! My favourite quilt is Grade 2, but they are all beautiful!!!

It looks like the pointed star template isn't available yet. Will it ship before the sew along begins?

(I think my comment didn't go through, I hope I'm not sending it twice). I'm anxious to start on this. I had ordered the EPP kit about a month ago, and have been playing around with the Hexagons. Now I'm ready to start on this beautiful mini quilt. However, I will be using a different Charm Pack - Aloha Girl by Fig Tree Quilts, mainly because I've been holding on to these 2 packs while waiting to use them for the perfect project, and this little quit IS IT! Can't wait to start.

This looks like a fun sew-along, but have you ladies at FQS ever heard of "Inklingo"? It seems like a better way to achieve EPP designs with hand-piecing of pre-printed EPP shapes, but without the fuss of templates and the sometimes unsightliness of the uneven hand-sewing at the joins. Now I really need to get myself a printer before I can try it, but you really don't need fancy equipment, just freezer paper and a regular colour printer. Might be worth investigating...
