    My Avatar

    This is my current Avatar. I have had a ton of inquiries regarding it. It is by Carol Doak and is block #18 - Janet's Block in "40 Bright and Bold Paper-Pieced Blocks". I did this for one of my Boomarang 9 swap buddies.
    Enjoy!!!

    I am especially proud of this one. Funny thing is, before the current swap, I had moved away from paper piecing in my quilting. I have now falling in love with this method all over again. After I complete some charity quilts I am working on, I think I am going to spend some time with my 2 Carol Doak books, perfecting my paper piecing....

    Love the block. I've never tried paper peicing. Maybe I will since seeing your block.

    The block is stunning! I've never looked at her books - guess I will have to remedy that situation! Not sure what you have to perfect - you've done great work!

    It is beautiful. I have the book and hope to make some blocks in the near future.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Thanks for sharing your avatar in a close-up picture. I love Carol Doak's designs and have made several projects from her "50 Stars" book. I'll have to look for this book -- "40 Bright and Bold..." to add to my library.

    I haven't made a quilt from her designs, but I have made table runners and wall hangings for my 12" block stand.
