Celebrating 4000 Members!!!

The Carol Doak Yahoo Group just hit another milestone with our 4000th member. It still amazes me that our group, only a bit more than two years old, has so many members from all over the world. It has been my custom in the past to create a new block design for the group in celebration of milestone memberships. The design above is our 4000 Member Celebration Block. Members will download the pattern for this block and create their own version. Then members upload photos of their blocks and the eye candy begins. It is so inspiring and exciting to see the same design worked in hundreds of different ways. And, as with past custom, I will also select a random winner to win a prize from all the pictures posted. If you want to join in the fun, just click on the link above.

In a past blog, I requested pictures of projects you have made from the designs in my books. The pictue of the “Turtle” quilt above was sent to me by Mary. Mary used a block design (block 297) from 300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks to make this darling quilt. The little turtles marching throughout the quilt are just precious. Thanks Mary for sharing your quilt pictures.

If you have a picture you would like to share, just send me a jpg at qcarol@comast.net.
I just returned from a teaching trip to a lovely quilt shop in Clarion, PA called Sew Elegant. The lecture and workshops were lots of fun and while I was there I stocked up on some fabric for a new project I am working on. Can’t tell you much yet, but standby…news will be shared soon.
All the best,
