Linda Jenkins and Becky Goldsmith of Piece O’ Cake are known for their bright, cheerful, and whimsical designs. Their revised 2nd edition of Piecing the Piece O’ Cake Way offers excellent general quilt instruction with clear text and helpful photos. This expanded version includes sections on color theory, improvisational quilting, and ten fresh new projects for skill enhancement. Sections cover supplies, fabric selection, techniques, and piecing with strips, squares, half-square triangles, curves, and diamonds. Their instructions for Y-seams and set-in circles demystify these techniques. The attractive quilt projects provide practice for each skill or you can practice them all in the sampler quilt provided at the end of the book.

There are lots of books that teach quilting basics, but this one stands out because of the small details I find make a huge difference in precise and successful piecing. These helpful piecing, pinning, and pressing tricks of the trade enable new and experienced quilters to improve and enjoy the steps of piecing and appliqué. I was impressed they included step-by-step photos of using a positioning pin for precise points because this is a favorite technique of mine and one I include in my tutorials. Piecing the Piece O’ Cake Way is a terrific book for a beginning quilter or a more experienced quilter wanting to improve skills – and the quilts are fun!
