Quilters use our art, sometimes, to depict what's happening in the world around us.  When I saw images of the Covid-19 virus, with its round shape with funky protuberances, I knew I had to draw it. I was in no way making light of the havoc caused by the virus—rather, this is one way of trying to makes sense of the situation we find ourselves in. The designs are loosely based on images of the Covid-19  virus. Each step pushes the abstraction further.  

Early in the pandemic, I offered the free pattern on my site, pieceocake.com, and the videos on YouTube. I am happy to offer the pattern and videos together here, where they are ad-free, as my contribution to help quilters create a memory quilt for this crazy time in our lives.

These video lessons offer a quick, but comprehensive, look at a variety of applique techniques. If you are interested in more in-depth instructions, please do consider taking a class with me on Creative Spark.

If you enjoy these videos, please do check out my other classes on Creative Spark! -Becky

Hear from Becky's Skillful Students


Becky is a warm, informal speaker, and at the same time very organized. We were impressed with her careful allotment of time to each phase of building our Bullseye panels, giving clear instruction, then having you come back together for each section to be fully explained and questions answered.

You come away with confidence to finish your Bullseye, but also collect so many tips and suggestions from her lifetime experience as an educator, author and business owner.

A thoroughly positive experience!

Trust a Pro

Becky is not only a friend but one of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is upbeat and always supportive of her students. She offers help and encouragement to everyone in her classes.

Becky gives clear and easy-to-follow instructions in class and she shows you exactly what you need to see to be successful. She listens to her students, and answers questions thoughtfully. Becky’s students finish class with big smiles on their faces and confidence in themselves.
