More About the Author

As a best-selling author, celebrated teacher and lecturer and award-winning quiltmaker, Carol Doak has geatly influenced the art and craft of quiltmaking for more than a decade, both in the U.S. and internationally. Her accomplishments include a sizable collection of popular books - Easy Machine Paper Piecing, Easy Paper-Pieced Keepsake Quilts, Easy Mix & Match Machine Paper Piecing, Show Me How to Paper Piece, Easy Reversible Vests, Easy Paper-Pieced Miniature Quilts, Your First Quilt Book (or it should be!), Easy Stash Quilts, 50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Stars, Easy Paper-Pieced Baby Quilt, 40 Bright and Bold Paper-Pieced Blocks, 300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks, Simply Sensational 9-Patch Stars and her recent release, Mariner's Compass Stars, is receiving rave reviews . Carol also recently released an updated version of her best-selling Easy Reversible Vests, 50 Little Paper-Pieced Blocks and her latest book, Carol Doak's Creative Combinations. With over one million books in print, it is no secret that Carol has raised the popularity of paper piecing, her trademark technique, to heights never before seen in the world of quiltmaking.

Carol's Carol Doak Foundation Paper and Carol Doak's Keepsake Frame Cards are very popular items for paper piecers around the world.

An impressive range of her beautiful blue-ribbon quilts have been featured in several books, such as Great American Quilts 1990 and The Quilt Encyclopedia and on the cover's of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, Quilt World, Quilting Today, Ladies' Circle Patchwork and McCall's Quilting.

Carol's lighthearted approach and ability to teach have earned her high marks and positive comments from workshop participants worldwide and at national shows such as the Houston International Quilt Festival and the American Quilter's Society Show. If you have ever taken a class from Carol, you know that her enthusiasm for quiltmaking is infectious. Carol has a gift of sharing her inspiring ideas with her students in such a positive and unique way. Carol travels to teach extensively through the United States including Alaska and Hawaii and as far away as England and Australia.

In April 1999, Carol was awarded the 8th Honors Award from the Eastcoast Quilters Alliance in recognition of her outstanding influence in the field of quilting. In September 1999, her book, Easy Machine Paper Piecing, was named by Quilter's Newsletter Magazine as one of the 30 most influential books in the past 30 years. She was also nominated as one of 24 All-American Quilters in 2004 and 2005 Professional Quilter of the year.

Carol's history in the quiltmaking is nothing short of remarkable, and the future of quiltmaking will benefit from her generous knowledge, enthusiasm, and most of all from her love of quilts.

Carol lives in New Hampshire, where she claims the cold winters give her plenty of reason to stockpile a fabric stash for insulation purposes!

Format: Paperback
Carol Doak is often called the Queen of paper-piecing, and "300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks" is the most recent reason why. The introductory pages contain a list of tools and supplies, suggestions for choosing fabrics and charts for calculating how much you will need. There are clear instructions - with pictures - on how to paper-piece, and tips on putting the blocks together.

The blocks are letters and numbers, houses, hearts, baskets, flowers and flower-pots, trucks and ducks, geometrics and graphics, and many more kinds of things. Besides being in the books, they are on the included CD-Rom disk, so they can be printed in any desired size. And here's a first - the disk is available for either Windows or Mac OS X.

Oh my goodness! I am so excited about this book! I have NEVER paper pieced before, I'm not even an experienced quilter, but this book will allow even me, to make a quilt that looks like a pro made it! I just finished my very first paper-pieced square, and it looks great! The directions were clear and easy to follow and included pictures throughout the directions. The first 36 blocks are letters and numbers and are 3" in size. The remaining 264 blocks are 4" in size (you put 4 of these together to create an 8" finished square) and include flowers, flags, ducks, firetrucks, houses, tea cups, geometrics and much, much more. There is a great full color gallery of each and every square, nicely layed out and numbered. Best of all? It includes a CD-Rom for your computer that absolutely ROCKS! It downloads all of the blocks into your computer giving you the ability to increase or decrease their size and print them out directly onto the foundation paper. I made block #182 because it looked simple, only 6 pieces, for my first try. You actually end up making 4 of these for the finished square and I decided to just hand trace them. After I made sure I really could paper piece, I downloaded the CD, and I can tell you, printing them out sure beats hand copying them, especially if you're paper piecing an entire quilt!!! If you buy this book, I recommend 2 things: 1-make sure you have a '6" Add-A-Quarter Ruler' (recommended in supplies list on page 7). I could see how paper piecing without it would be a pain in the patooty. 2-I highly recommend this foundation paper I got at Joanne's. This paper fed right through my finicky printer with no hassles, yet was very transparent. The name of the paper is "Fun-dation" and it's made by HCTW. If you're interested in paper-piecing, this is a GREAT book, even for a beginner!

This is a great resource for quilt blocks. There is a huge variety to choose from and examples are given how to arrange the blocks. They are easy to make and fun to do. The CD-ROM is great too -- no more photocopying!!! Just print the patterns out.

Do you like to paper piece but hate the copying and tracing? Well

this book is for you. With over 300 quilt blocks it is a great bargain. Make sure you get the disk with the book if you buy used. You'll get all the info you need to complete some beautiful blocks.

I own several paper-piecing books, some by Carol Doak. All of hers have been wonderful. This one stood out to me because of the smaller size blocks (3" to 4") and the CD which includes copies of the patterns. The size was important to me because I can now include beautiful paper-pieced blocks or portions of blocks in my borders easily. Many other books include patterns for larger blocks & you must reduce pattern, etc. So for those of us who dislike recalculating pattern sizes and accompanied set-in pieces, this makes it a breeze. Carol once again gets an A+.

Format: Paperback
I really like this book. The directions are very clear. The patterns run from just a few pieces to lots of pieces. This was my first introduction to paper pieceing. Even though this is not Mrs. Doak's first book, its written so that if you have never paper pieced before you can easily start. If you are experienced you can easily skip right to the patterns and get started. I created one on the blocks as the envelope portion of a quillow. With the software I easily changed the size of the block to fit my needs.

I am very excited about this paper-pieced book and CD. It is a great value ($10 cheaper than the local bookstore), easy to follow even if you are not an experienced paper-piecer, and loaded with great patterns. The CD makes it really easy to change the block size and if you register it online you get some bonus patterns. If you have thought at all about trying this fast and fun technique, this is a great first book for you to go with. Or if you are an experienced piecer, it has tons of new and traditional designs. You will be busy for a long time with this Paper-Pieced Smorgasbord and will not be disappointed!
