Egg Money Quilts: 1930's Vintage Samplers

( 2 )

Overview


Before the 1940's, most eggs were produced on rural farms with small flocks that scratched their way around the barnyard. The farmer's wife was usually responsible for caring for her chickens and the money received from the sale of the eggs was hers. Surely, some fabric was purchased with this precious fund and from that came the quilt patterns uniquely associated with the Depression years of the 1930's.

Meet the Author


Twenty nine years ago Eleanor Burns introduced her first Quilt in a Day book, cultivating a quiltmaking revolution. She presented her unique style, a diverse combination of cutting and sewing applications, creating new techniques altogether. Her concise step by step directions are easy to grasp, allowing the possibility for anyone to be successful at making a quilt. Eleanor Burns gave quiltmakers techniques that compacted months into merely a day, a quilt in a day, spreading her vibrant enthusiasm within everyone. She has motivated thousands of want-to-be quilters with needed confidence and assurance. Altogether, the impact of her influences opened the door to a renewal. Her efforts sowed the seeds that have grown into many techniques that are commonly used today. Since 1978 when she self-published her first book "Make a Quilt in a Day: Log Cabin Pattern," she has authored over seventy five additional books. Throughout the world today, there are thousands of inst!ructors teaching her quiltmaking methods. Her first Quilt in a Day TV series began airing on PBS in 1990 and is still broadcast nationwide and abroad and now her shows can be seen on the world wide web on QNN and Quilters TV.

    One of The Best Quilting Books Ever

    I absolutely love Eleanor Burns books on quilting. I love this book so much I am giving it as a gift to a sister-in-law. I have made two quilts from this book already. I don't know where the other commentor got the idea that another book is needed to make the wedding ring quilt. All directions are there including the templete. Anyway the book is great. I recommend all of her books. I have 8 and have material purchased to make more quilts from her books. I did one from Night and Day and all my quilting friends oh'd and ah'd. Her books will take you step by step through what used to be difficult patterns. Have Fun!!!!

    How Disappointing!

    I bought this book for the Double Wedding Ring - when I got it home and read the fine print, I have to purchase the instructions from another store. I would never recommend this book to anyone.
