Hi there; I have heard through the threadvine that there are paper foundations for some of the Farmer's Wife blocks. Would anyone be able to tell me where I can find them? Thank you! ~ Val

Sharman, Hi, I recently bought a book (at Hobby Lobby) called "100 Paper Pieced Quilt blocks" by: Linda Causee, and it has a sailboat in it.  I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but it came with a CD for different block sizes, (Unfortunately my CD was blank) but if U want I can try to scan it into my computer and send it to you in an email.  If you're interested  email me at: and I'll give it a try.

I need help in finding a book with DVD disc that has sailboats as well as many other patterns.  I had ordered  one that I was so excited to use and now cannot find it.  I recently reorganized my sewing room and the disc is nowhere to be found. Arrrrrgh! I cannot remember the name of the book and a search on Google has not helped. Do any of you have books with DVDs that feature sailboats that you could recommend?  Perhaps the one you recommend will help me remember the name of the one I've lost or will lead me to a new find.  Thanks!!!

Beautiful quilt Terri.  Love Carol Doak's paper.  It is so much easier to remove than any other paper I have used.  Good luck at the county fair.

Connie, I use Carol Doak's paper as well.  I love it.

My first New York Beauty quilt.  Adapted from the book "Quilt Mavens" by Deb Karasik and Janet Mednick. I will be entering it in the county fair next week with Deb Karasik's permission.  I am very excited about the way it came out.

Hi Donna and thanks, I just finished the parts for the second block I've done and will put it together later, a little tired right now.  I do find I like the way it all comes together at the end.

Alexe,  Good for you.  Keep practicing.  Paper piecing is so great because you follow lines when you sew so everything comes out perfect.  I love it and got my best ribbons on a king quilt I paper pieced.
