over all a reasonabley thorough guide for this pattern which i also believe is called "the lone star". a few details are ambiguous and i did find a pointer in another book about how to keep the long stripes you are sewing together from forming a rainbow. thier guidance on picking colors is very helpful. all that aside this is a tough quilt to make. this is my fifth quilt and i think i may have bit off more than i can chew this early in my experience!

Format: Paperback
This "quilt in a day" book is definitely a misnomer - it is NOT a "quilt in a day". It will take you quite a bit of time and patience to make this quilt, but the rewards are worth it. My first attempt turned out poorly because I inadvertently stretched the bias while pressing the seams. I also learned to improve my pressing skills while trying to keep this aligned and straight! My second attempt turned out much better.

This earlier published book does not have the same degree of clarity in the directions as compared to Ms Burns' other, later books. Also no color pictures. But the directions are understandable. Read it several times and practice on inexpensive fabrics (e.g., muslins) before going at it with your expensive collections. A lovely quilt!

Ok, the book might not be fun, persay, but making the quilt sure is! I didn't find myself terribly confused after using the book, the instructions made sense and I have a beautiful quilt to prove it. Just some tips of my own that I don't recall where in the book, When making this quilt, precise cutting, and precise sewing are very necessary, it will make life a billion times easier.

Good luck!

I made this quilt easily following the directions to the tee. I was very pleased with the ending results. I especially liked the diagrams and step by step directions. I found every point to match and every seam to line up which can be a nightmare when making this pattern on the bias. However, with Eleanor Burns strip method... the problem of stretching bias was non-existing. I enjoyed making this quilt from her instructions and am planning another in the near future.

Eleanor Burns is the Quilt In A Day lady! I wanted to try making a Lone Star Quilt but was put off by the tiny pieces and all the bias edges until I found this book. It's not new, 1990, but the technique is easy to understand and will let me make this beautiful quilt without the stress and frustration I felt was sure to be part of the process.

This book of Star quilts has some of the most detailed, easy to follow instructions I have yet seen. These quilts are a work of art when finished, and are not for the novice, but this book takes the anxiety out of the project!

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.
