A Delightful Evening With Carol Doak

Last evening, my guild welcomed Carol Doak, who is known throughout the quilting world as the foremost expert on paper piecing with more than 1 million books in print. (be sure to read Carol's blog)

What a wonderful evening, full of quilters' eye candy. Not only is Carol a masterful quiltmaker, she is a delightful speaker. I think all of us who were there agree that a good time was had by all. Some lucky members of our guild are taking Carol's workshops today and perhaps they will finish their projects in time to enter in our guild's show coming up in less than 2 months.

Here are a few photos taken during the presentation. If I've done things right, you should be able to click on a photo to see a larger version.
Many thanks to Madalene, our guild's workshop coordinator, for helping make this evening a reality. She had been working on getting Carol here for at least the last 2 years. She's also the one you see in the photos assisting Carol with the quilts.
Thank you to Carol as well. It was a long 2 years, but well worth waiting for.
