More About 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 instructors 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.

I recommnend the Irish Chain to friends who want to learn piecing. This simple quilt always turns out well and is a do-able and motivating choice for that first project. The book teaches rotary cutting and uses time-saving techinques to simplify the project. Easy to follow instructions. Illustrations. Gaurenteed success.

This is like most of Eleanor's books well thought out. A very easy step by step approach to the quilt, with good directions and fabric amounts for just about any size quilt you care to make. I use this book in my beginning quilt classes.

I loved the Irish Chain but it took me a lot more time to complete than a day. I am not a big fan of her quick turn method for putting the batting into a quilt "pillow Case". I gave it a try and it was a mess. I will always use the tried and true way of layering and binding the quilt.

Eleanor makes this complex-looking quilt simple. Cutting and assembling the fabrics in strips makes the chain pattern come together beautifully. Might be too much for a beginning quilter; perfect for someone who has already made a quilt or two.

I didn't do it in a day, but the instruction is pretty easy to follow. Color pictures. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I ordered this book and was so disappointed with the quality that I returned it. I thought the printing was so crude that it looked like it was printed on a mimieograph machine. In my opinion the book "Time For A Chain: The Irish Chain Updated" is much better quality, easier to understand and is laid out better.

The book was in very good condition except it had someone's name written in ink on the front. Also, I expected all the pages to be in color.
