    Buy Inklingo. one time cost and you can print all the English paper piecing shapes you want. Thanks for the site. Here is what I have done before. I staple the paper template to a stack of papers and then cut them out all at once with scissors. A staple remover is a must, no tears in the paper. I buy heavy weight paper at Staples for the Inklingo and template. One ream will last a lifetime! :D

    Inklingo has some basic shapes for free downloading and the getting started instructions. The pattern cds are a great value per cost if you use a lot of paper templates. I use it to print out the paper templates and the fabric. I make the shapes big and use them to printout fusibles or hand appliqué. The Inklingo yahoo group has tons of great tips and new ways of using the printouts.

    Stamps By Kate. You just stamp the fabric with the shape you want. As many or as few. No waste and no sewing through those pieces of paper only to have to unsew them later! Just stamp, cut out, and sew on the lines. She has all sizes and shapes. It is awesome!

    For my GFG hexies, I bought the 1" hex punch at JoAnns and punched out lots of hexes then used a plain paper punch to punch a hole in the middle so I could pop them out to reuse. I used 110 weight cardstock. For other shapes, I may have to buy them.

    I use the Shapes feature in Microsoft to create a hex. Make it whatever size you want, then copy and paste to fill the page. Print on card stock and cut out. Each piece is reusable several times.
    Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift....that's why it's called the present.

    Thank you KY. I am trying EPPing for the first time and was having quite a time finding connecting diamonds for the hexegons. I knew I would find something on the QB.

    I don't think you follow QB any more but thanks anyway and maybe others will see this and try EPP.
    peace
