    I thought I would show you a lap quilt I did with one of Carol Doak's paper piece patterns. I had fun making this. The blocks are her's but the layout of the quilt was mine.

    Hey Okie look at those perfect points...that is a beauty Thanks for sharing...that encourages me because I have about 10 blocks done to make a table runner and I wondered how I would assemble the thing...I absolutly love Carol Doak's patterns and her paper have you tried any of her paper?....it tears like a check just so smooth and it is so easy to sew over just really nice and not bad for the price...

    Yes I have. I used it on this quilt. It's the only one I've used. I tried one that was transparent. Hated it.

    It's pattern #166 from her book 300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks. It comes with a CD. I thought it was easy. At first it seems awkard but once you get a rhythm it goes pretty smooth. Her instructions are pretty easy to follow. Be sure to get the added quater inch ruler that is mentioned. It makes is alot easier. I don't see how you can do it accurately without it. I recommend this technique to anyone.

    that ruler is so cool I have to say I really enjoy quilting since I found paper piecing...it goes so smooth and comes out so good every time I never have to seem rip which was my specialty until now...lol
