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!

Customer Reviews

Very bad foundation paper.save the money ...do not buy.
Eduardo M. Moreno
The foundation paper was easy to put in the printer and print on and easy to tear away from the quilt blocks.

I really like this paper. It's easier to tear away when the quilting is done than similar papers. I've tried most papers designed for paper piecing by machine. It's also stronger than many and doesn't fall apart before I'm ready to remove it.

The ink stays in this paper and never transfers to my fabric. That's a big plus as after I've gone to all the time and effort it takes to make the block, I don't want the ink bleeding into the fabrics and ruining the block.

This paper is easy to see through so that when placing each piece of fabric, it is in the right place and orientation the first time thus cutting down the number of times I have to reposition the fabric.

The main thing I use this paper for is foundation piecing; i.e. making the blocks that make up the quilt. I print the design directly onto the paper with my HP inject printer. The other use I've found for this paper is I print my quilting design, i.e. the design for the stitching that holds the layers together. I then pin or spay glue it to the top of the quilt sandwich and use my walking foot to to the actual stitching. The little scraps that I pull off when finished quilting are often used to number my cut fabrics when I'm cutting the pieces to approximate size so that I know, I'm putting the correct fabrics in the proper places in the block. This saves paper and reduces the amount that winds up in the land fills. This is also newsprint style paper, so most municipalities accept in in the bundle of newspapers for recycling. I just fold the scraps inside the newspaper and bundle as usual.

I've used this paper for just about every pp'ing project I've ever done and I love it. It runs through the printer well, and I print on draft mode. It comes apart after sewing very well.

I've tried several different kinds of paper for paper piecing, but this is the one I prefer. It prints beautifully in my inkjet printer, yet it's also easy enough to trace something if I decide to do that. It's sturdy enough to sew through without shredding, yet it tears off very easily when I'm finished making my blocks or quilt.

This could be great but with the printers and copiers of today it just isn't working out for me. I have tried 4 pro-quality printers, 2 pro-quality copiers, 2 home printers and everytime this thin paper has jammed up. I've gone through a half package in jammed paper, just to throw them away. I finally dug out my ancient HP all-in-one copier and it will feed them through one sheet at a time but it is running on borrowed time. I would go to a copy company but that is just too expensive for what it is. For the money, I'd rather just use regular copy paper and use tight stitches.

The paper works fine but order Sax Plain White Newsprint Newspaper - 8 1/2 x 11 inches - Pack of 500 - White instead. You get 500 sheets (5 times as much!) for 1/2 the cost of Carol Doaks's paper. Wish I had found this sooner and hopefully can save someone the expense. Both papers are equal in quality and provide the same print quality!

This is best, easiest foundation paper I've used so far. I'm a young quilter and this has made paper piecing sooo much easier than other methods I've tried. I only gave 4*'s because it did not run through the printer well. I tried my computer printer, my husbands computer printer and 3 different copy machines and finally on the last copy machine I fed it through one page at a time and it worked. I think that's just the price you pay for it being lighter weight and easier to sew/tear away. It makes "unsewing" easier since my stitches don't have to be so small.
