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 inst!ructors 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 am a beginning quilter. I had previously purchased 4 highly recommended books, but they weren't real clear for a total beginner. This book is absolutely great. The instructions, pictures, diagrams, everything, clear and easy to understand. Now, I can finally get started quilting with confidence thanks to this book. Could have saved lots of money if I had purchased this book first.

This book has good photos of the 13 quilts and one pillow sham included. The instructions also appear to be simple enough for a beginner like me, and include fabric selection advice as well as places to glue scraps of the fabric you plan on using for your own reference. Each quilt instruction has multiple drawings illustrating the step-by-step instructions.

There are several different size options given for each quilt, including: "Single Block", "Pillow", "Tablerunner", "Wallhanging", "Lap/Twin", "Full/Queen", "King", although not all quilts included in the book have every size listed. As a note, there are several pages where some of the directions have been covered by stickers giving slightly different measurements, this seems to have been done by the publisher and doesn't really detract from the book's value as a teaching guide.

However I could do without all the "memories" and photographs of the author's family and business sucesses, but as far as actual quilting patterns and directions the book looks helpful. This is a book which should give every level of machine quilter from beginner to experienced something new to sew.

This is a great book for a beginning quilter. As is true with all of Ms. Burn's books, the instructions are clear, the book includes a lot of fantastic illustrations and the quilts are easy to make with strip piecing. I have made three of the quilts and they go together very quickly and easily.

I downgraded the book to three stars because of the physical quality of the book. The copy I received apparently contained many, nmany errors, which had been corrected by pasting small pieces of paper with the corrections over the original type - I counted 25 "pastings" in all! The book LOOKED like a patchwork quilt on some pages! It also had some misnumbered pages (that were not corrected), as well as headings that were incorrect (wrong name of quilt in the heading). I also found errata sheets for one of the quilts on the Quilt-in-a-Day website.

This was a hardcover copy and I was very disappointed that the publisher (a) let so many errors thru to final copy; and (b) made me pay so much money for a book that had so many typoes and "patches". I hope that those problems have been resolved in the copies that are now available.

Well, if you have ever watch "Quilt In A Day" on PBS with Elenor Burns you will find this a fun and enjoyable book. Lots of beautiful patterns and quilts. Sprinkled among her family photo album of where the last 25 years have taken Elenor. It is witty (as she is) and funny and the quilts are very pretty and I think simple to make!
A must buy for any quilter who loves Elenor Burns!
Happy Day!
Wendy
