It has been several months since I have sent out a newsletter and my only excuse is that I was enjoying the wonderful summer weather gardening, kayaking and spending time with family and friends. Now that Autumn is upon us, I am motivated to get back into my sewing room and share lots of news with you.


The Web Store




The three blocks above are from the 300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks Book and the beauty of this book is the variety of blocks that are perfect throughout the year and the fact that it comes with the Foundation Factory CD to print the blocks in any size you like. You can print them out in the 3 inch size which is perfect for the Carol Doak Keepsake Cards.For this reason, I am going to place this book on sale this month.





50 Little Paper-Pieced Blocks and Keepsake Cards Bundle



Of course, I can't not include the 50 Little Paper-Pieced Blocks and Keepsake Cards Bundle as an on sale item this month as well.




Carol Doak`s Keepsake Frame Cards-Triple Play!!!-Save with this bundle.


But then we have all these colorful options for the Carol Doak Keepsake Cards with the Celebration Colors and the Earth and Sky Colors and the always perfect White cards. Therefore, I am going to put a wonderful sale price on the Carol Doak`s Keepsake Frame Cards-Triple Play!!!-Save with this bundle.

It is so wonderful to start to see things show up using the block designs from my newest book, Carol Doak's Creative Combinations.


Recently I issued a challenge to the Carol Doak Quilting Group to use the Lily Basket Block I gave them and fram it using some of the blocks from the new book. The results were simply wonderful. Since, I have seen wonderful quilts, wall hangings and table runners using the blocks from the new book.

The Carol Doak Quilting Group

The group members continue to amaze me. We just completed a miniature quilt challenge and the little cuties that members shared are amazing. I am going to begin working on a new challenge for the group soon. We are now 8787 members. Pretty amazing!

My Craftsy Class


Holy cow, there are now over 5100 members in my class! Now you would think that with that many students I would have so many questions from students. In reality, there are actually very few questions asked. I think that is a testament to the quality of the format and information. It also helps to have received only 5 star reviews and people who state that the love, love, love the class. I can teach so much more in this format and you have the opportunity to review the video anytime you like. All the patterns are a bonus. The little quilt on the left was made by abudhabiquilter and she used the Mariner`s Compass pattern and framed it with the border design that comes inside the legal size paper. I think it is mouth watering! If you want to join in the fun, use this link to receive 50% off the class. My gift to you (and your friends).



Quilted In Honor was born from the idea that, by working together, the quilting industry could come together and make a positive impact in the lives of military families in need by raising much-needed funds and by creating and donating quilts. A percentage of sales from every single Quilted In Honor product sold goes towards benefiting military families through the charitable organization, Operation Homefront. I am honored to be part of this project. If you click on the photo of Eleanor, it will bring you to the web site where you can explore all that is going on as well as free patterns. The pattern at the podium is one that Sharon Pederson made featuring my designs.

Until next time,

Happy paper piecing...
