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, to Grand Junction, Colorado, in 2008, and finally to Buckeye, Arizona, where they currently reside.
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.
