Meet the Author

Over thirty years ago Eleanor Burns introduced her first Quilt in a Day book, cultivating a quilt-making revolution. She presented her unique style, a diverse combination of cutting and sewing applications, and created new techniques altogether. She also introduced an incredibly rapid stitching system, applying the method of assembly-line sewing to piecework. Her concise, step-by-step directions were easy to grasp, allowing anyone to be successful at making a quilt. She gave quilt makers techniques that compacted months into merely a day-a quilt in a day. Today, as she continues to passionately devote herself to nurturing and motivating thousands of want-to-be quilters with needed self-confidence, her name and techniques have become synonymous with quilt making.
