Show 1213 - "Shake It Up" with the Queen of Paper Piecing

Featuring: Carol Doak

Posts On: June 17, 2013


Quilt artist, prolific author (20 books and counting), and popular teacher Carol Doak joins the TQS gang aboard the historic USS Yorktown, now part of the Patriots Point museum complex just east of Charleston, SC. Considered by many the Queen of Paper Piecing, Carol "shakes things up" with a ton of creative options for flipping, distorting, and otherwise changing up the shape of familiar paper-pieced elements. Among her revelations: a method that allows you to incorporate paper piecing to size borders for any quilt. We wrap with a tour of our location, veteran of two wars, the Apollo 8 space mission . . . and two Hollywood movies!
