About the Author

About Linda Jenkins

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. Becky and Linda initially self-published their patterns and books but are now very happy members of the C&T Publishing family. Visit Becky and Linda at their website, www.pieceocake.com, and their blog, pieceocake.typepad.com/piece-o-cake-blog.

No wonder these ladies look happy in their pic on the back cover, they are happy quilters. These ladies know more than a thing or two about patchwork and quilting and they share their techniques in this practical reference. Find everything you need to know from sewing seams to cutting large pieces of fabric and lots more to create fabulous quilts. Discover basic arithmetic that enables you to make any quilt any size. Contents include Fabric; Colour; Techniques; Strips; Squares; Half-Square Triangles; Curves; Diamonds; Sampler Quilt; Improvisational Piecing and more. Discover 10 projects to hone your skills and build your confidence. I love the projects and would make them all, but Spinwheels is my favourite. I think I will try the sampler quilt to test and practice different skills. Bits and Pieces is also very appealing for trying out new skills. Such a useful book. Recommended.

I am new to quilting and I have to say this book is brilliant. I have found the following instructions and techniques so easy. It guides you through everything., I was astounded by hte amount of information. It covers so much and makes you much more confident quilting. I don't normally take to books so much but this one really does what it says. I love the fact it talks you through everything and gives you so much information at each stage. There are a lot of things I have been trying but have found difficult. I found instructions in the book that have made it so much easier. There are photos and diagrams throughout the book, they are clear and easy to follow. The first part of the book is taken up with all the how to's and instructions. Then it moves onto different quilt patterns and how to make them. I love fact that they even have arrows to help you with your assembly. I haven't seen this in a book before. Even when your are making the quilts they still provide helpful pictures and instructions. If you already quilt then it doesn't matter, you still have all the qilts and designs you can make. I found this book really useful!
