RARE Science works directly with patient families and foundations to find more immediate therapeutic solutions for children with rare diseases. 

This year RARE Science is partnering with TQS (and a number of other great organizations) to bring you... the FIRST Ever Celebrity RARE Bear Auction!  This is your opportunity to own a signed bear made by the quilt world's most talented artists while helping a great cause.

Meet "Flower" by Becky Goldsmith of Piece O' Cake Designs

Star Members can watch Becky in Show 1704: Color Challenges and a Quickie Quilt.

Flower is the kind of bear I'd like to find wandering around my garden. I chose yellow fabric because yellow is sunny and cheerful. Her shape reminded me of the 1960’s (why is that?) so I chose daisy and butterfly applique designs to enhance that look. I think she’s a very perky bear and she is ready for big hugs!

With "fur" of a wonderful sunshine yellow and featuring the trademark appliqué of Piece O' Cake designs, this lovely lady would bring joy to any home. Flower even features Becky's hand stitched "autograph".



Becky 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 will help you improve your sewing skills—while keeping it fun.

Making quilts is interesting, fulfilling, and challenging—for all of us! Being a member of the greater quilting community is a bonus that adds to all of our lives. Becky never imagined that being a quilter would become her life’s work, but she’s so happy that it did!
