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.

This is the first quilt that I tried and the book was great and very easy to follow. I will use it over and over again and never have to make the same quilt. Everyone that has seen the quilt thinks I have been doing them forever.

This book has excellent directions, and I found that the quilt went together very easily and accurately, but NOT very quickly. I did a double/queen and it took me about 30 hours just to piece the top. The quilting of course took much longer. So, do not buy this if you really think it's a fast quilt to put together. Also, the piecing methods for the stars are very easy, but they waste a LOT of fabric. Next time, I'll just piece them the old fashioned way.

Directions were very thorough as were pictures showing each step of making this quilt. Sizes given were from wallhanging to king. The quilt I made won first place in a local quilt show.

The log cabin is for beginners, and this a great one. I'm an experienced quilter and, even so, I love Eleanor's clear instructions on what to do next and her ability to walk you through the process. The charts, descriptions, and diagrams are first rate. I loved making this quilt in twin size. One thing: If you're making either Field & Furrows or Mountains layout, don't cut out two strips of the lattice and sew them together. Cut one 3.5" wide for each lattice since you'll be using the same color. (that tip isn't mentioned in the book)

As a new quilt maker, I found the directions easy to follow and learned a lot about short cuts for making blocks. I would recommend the book to anyone interested in quilting. However, let's get real -- it is not a quilt in a day -- at least not a 24 hour day. It was more like 2 weeks worth of days for a crib quilt, but worth it none the less.

Eleanor Burns has a nack for making a complicated pattern easy and quick. This Log cabin is my favourite pattern and the added stars in the sashing is a bonus. Eleanor's easy strip piecing methods makes this a beginners quilt and interesting enough for a more experienced quilter to be challenged.
A must for your Library especially if you love the tradional Log cabin or a Star quilt lover.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book with clear step-by-step instructions for the novice quilter. THe instructions are very easy to follow and the result is a superb quilt, which is quick and easy to make. A few more colour pictures of the finished pattern would have been useful, as would pictures of the process rather than line diagrams, but overall another winner for the series.
