February 2019 Program

Becky Goldsmith

A Practical Approach to Color

Becky Goldsmith, of Piece O’ Cake Designs, is our February speaker. She is an award-winning quilter who travels to teach quilting both nationally and internationally. Her classes are always interesting and informative, with an emphasis on teaching techniques that help you improve your sewing skills without making you crazy. She started Piece O’ Cake Designs with Linda Jenkins in 1994. They published more than 30 books and hundreds of patterns, including 7 Blocks of the Month. Linda retired in 2014 and Becky has continued writing books and patterns.

Making quilts is interesting, fulfilling, and challenging for her—and being a member of the quilting community is an added bonus. She never imagined that being a quilter would become her life’s work, but she’s so happy that it did! Becky is known for her applique skills but her latest book is Bullseye Quilts from Vintage to Modern which includes simple instructions for foundation paper piecing a variety of sizes of Bullseye quilts. She is also the designer of the 2019 Block of the Month for TheQuiltShow.com.

Becky’s presentation, A Practical Approach to Color, on February 12 will include a power point presentation and some quilts. She will share what she’s figured out about color over the years and how we can use this knowledge in our own quilts. Come early for a good seat to hear this wonderful speaker and teacher!
