I've seen Piece O'Cake designs before and even read other books, so I was particularly disappointed in this book. First of all, I am not an overly fussy quilter, my points will never all match and I'm okay with that. But I am also not totally ready to throw my ruler out the window. I have no problem with intentionally wonky, it's just not my style. So I was already not a good match for this book. But my biggest problem is that in every patter, they refer you to another book and DVD of theirs to ...more
I LOVE the freedom this book grants you!

How fun to cut without use of a ruler! Guesstimate measurements! Wonkiness is allowed, permitted and even encouraged with the appliqué! I simply love this book cover-to-cover!

I plan to make several new quilts inspired by the ones in this book! Way to go Becky!

Most people know me as half of the Piece O' Cake Designs team. With my partner, Linda Jenkins, we have written many quilt books. I am also a wife, mother, grandmother, and daughter. I love my family and friends!

Travel is part of my life - for both work and pleasure. I travel and teach quilting nationally and internationally. It's great fun to meet new people and see new places! My husband, Steve,
