Meet the Author

Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins first met at the Green Country Quilters Guild in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where they both held up their hands and volunteered for jobs at their very first guild meetings. Their friendship grew as they worked together on many guild projects and through a shared love for quilting, and for appliqué in particular. They started Piece O' Cake Designs in 1994, as they were each moving away from Tulsa. Becky and her husband headed for Sherman, Texas, with their two sons. Linda and her husband, Paul, moved first to Pagosa Springs, Colorado, back to Tulsa in 2001, and finally to Grand Junction, Colorado, in 2008. Linda owned and managed a beauty salon before she started quilting. Over the years she developed a fine eye for color as a hair colorist and makeup artist. Becky took a liberal sprinkling of art classes while completing her interior design degree. They think that their varied backgrounds have combined well, making the quilts they design distinctive.

    Not just for Christmas - great applique reference

    If you love Christmas and love to applique, this book will definitely have something for you. With detailed, clear color photographs and patterns that have registration marks for precise applique placement, there are whimsical, cute designs with Santa and his toys and fun and funky trees, or more traditional images with poinsettias and Old St. Nick. The section on applique is invaluable, detailing the Piece O Cake way using overlays and vinyl to get accurate placement, and with tips and instructions for special techniques such as circles and reverse applique. The only issue I had with this book is that some of the patterns need to be enlarged. Know that before you get involved in a project that you just *have* to get started on!
