May Newsletter 2004
Well, spring has finally arrived in New England and I am thrilled. I have been busy working on several projects that are in the works.
The page proofs for my next book due out in October, 300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks, arrived for proof reading. It is always such fun to see the text and colored pictures in the book format. It turned out just amazingly wonderful! The big news about this new book is that it will come with the Foundation Factory program CD to print the foundations in the book. This could not be done before because the Foundation Factory was not available for both MAC and PC computers and this CD is formatted for both. Yeah!!!! It is a huge book, 176 pages filled with all NEW block designs (except for the alphabet foundations) and will definitely be considered "a must have" resource for anyone who loves to paper piece.
The other news is that the book, Easy Mix & Match Machine Paper Piecing, is now sold out so it is being removed from my web page. I still do have a supply of the other two out of print books, Easy Reversible Vests and Easy Paper-Pieced Keepsake Quilts and I will keep them on the web site for as long as the supply of these books lasts.
There are a few more fun projects in the works. I will share more information about them as their releases approach.
We are planning a return Caribbean Quilters Cruise for next January. My cruise last year was my first cruise and it is something I am definitely looking forward to repeating. There are three days of quilt classes (while at sea) and lovely weather, beautiful weather, great food and entertainment. What more could you ask for? Some quilters came by themselves, some traveled with friends and some brought their husbands and everyone had a super time. If you would like more information about January's cruise, visit the Quilt Pro Systems web page at: Quilt-Pro Systems
I'm heading off to Rhode Island, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Oregon, Ohio, South Carolina and Louisiana in the coming weeks. Perhaps I will have a chance to meet some of you in real life!
Until next time, all the best, Carol Doak
