Piece O' Cake Designs
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!
In 1994 Linda's husband, Paul, retired and they made the decision to move to beautiful Pagosa Springs, CO. Becky's husband, Steve, decided to take a job as a professor of biology at Austin College in Sherman, TX. The block that Becky drew for Linda's friendship quilt started our business as we were both leaving Tulsa for new horizons!
Linda and Paul moved back to Tulsa in 2002 to be closer to family and friends. After being back in Tulsa for 5 yeas they realized that they really preferred the climate in Colorado! Linda and Paul moved to Grand Junction in 2007 and sincerely hope that they will be there for the long run. (FYI - Becky and Steve are still in Sherman, TX.)
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!
