About Piece O' Cake
We (Linda Jenkins & Becky Goldsmith) met at a meeting of the Green Country Quilter's Guild in Tulsa, OK, in 1986. Linda (on the right) had just sold the beauty shop that she had owned for 20 years and was ready to quilt seriously. Becky was new to Tulsa and fresh out of her first quilting class. We both became very active in Guild activities and over the years became very good friends. For those of you who would like to make more quilting friends, go to a Guild meeting and raise your hand when volunteers are asked for. You never know when you will make a friend for life!
Piece O' Cake Designs has grown in leaps and bounds from that first block to include many books, blocks of the month, and new quilt patterns. And we're always busy designing even more new and exciting quilts. We hope you enjoy them!
About Becky Goldsmith
I grew up in Oklahoma and met my husband, Steve, at the University of Oklahoma. We married in 1978, at the end of our senior year at OU when we each completed our degrees: mine in interior design and his in zoology. He eventually became a college professor at Austin College in Sherman, TX.
Our two sons, Chris and Jeff, are grown and married to Lorna and Celia, respectively. We have grandchildren! It is great fun to watch Elanor, Jack, and Bear as they grow up.
I met Linda Jenkins, my partner in Piece O’ Cake Designs, not long after I started quilting at a meeting of the Green Country Quilters’ Guild in Tulsa. We’ve been friends ever since. We started Piece O' Cake in 1994. I could not have asked for a better partner.
Linda and I still work together but this book I have written on my own. Color is something I have spent many years thinking about, learning about, and teaching. It feels like the right time to put it all in a book.
Designing and making quilts, writing books, and teaching others how to make quilts is a better career than I could ever have imagined. Quilters are wonderful people and I love being a part of the quilt-world!
