Doak is the doyenne of foundation paper piecing—a quilt-piecing technique that uses a paper foundation for precision stitching of quilt blocks. Her latest collection focuses on quilt blocks and border units that can be combined in a variety of ways, each with a unique look. Printable and resizable foundation patterns, cutting charts, and setting ideas for 24 blocks and eight corner units are presented, as well as eight quilt projects incorporating the blocks from the collection. Most of the blocks are beginner friendly, and Doak's expert guidance helps quilters new to the technique get started. VERDICT Doak's books are popular with quilters who enjoy foundation paper piecing. This collection will appeal to quilters of all skill levels.
