Meet the Author

Thirty years ago, Eleanor Burns introduced her first Quilt in a Day book, beginning a quilt-making revolution. She invited all types of sewers to participate in an age-old tradition using her unique style—a diverse combination of cutting and sewing applications that replaced scissors and templates with rips and strips, bringing rotary speed to patchwork. She also introduced an incredibly rapid stitching system, applying the method of the assembly line sewing to piecework. She has authored over eighty additional books that sell at a rate of well over 6,500 per week. She has trained thousands of instructors throughout the world who teach her quilt-making methods. In 1990, Eleanor pioneered the way people view quilt making with television. Her Quilt in a Day TV series began airing on PBS and is still broadcasting nationwide and abroad. She has also developed her own signature fabric lines, several special-edition sewing machines, and received numerous awards and recognition for her lifetime of achievements.

    I highly reccomend this book-check it out!!!

    Eleanor has outdone herself with this book. The patterns are easy to understand and go together in no time. It is very easy to add your own spin on all of them and not loose focus of the barns. GREAT book, one of my favorites!

    Great book...love this author!

    True to form, Eleanor Burns explains every nifty trick she knows in easy-to-follow detail. The quilt blocks are beautiful, and many options for color and assembly are given in this book.

    Not so much

    I returned this book after ordering online.
    It had easy to follow instructions, but nothing really new in ways of quilting or piecing.
