Eleanor Burns, the Queen of Quilting and 2011 TQS Legend, is celebrating her 40th anniversary. And she shows no signs of slowing down as she made her entrance along the red carpet! Join us as this teacher and entertainer shows you how to piece with precision, twirl your seams, and cut the fastest log cabin strips you’ve ever seen…all while making you laugh along the way. It’s a show not to be missed.
Eleanor celebrates her 40th year since the publication of her first book (Log Cabins, 1978). She joins Alex and Ricky to reminisce about 40 years of Quilt in a Day and they look at her quilts.
Eleanor shows how fast, easy, and accurately you can make four flying geese blocks while telling charming stories from the past.
Eleanor shows you how to make the Kentucky Chain block which always reminds her of her time spent in Paducah at the quilt show.
Learn about log cabin blocks. First published in 1978 Eleanor’s first Log Cabin-Make a Quilt in a Day is still as popular today as it was 40 years ago. Her traditional method of cutting has been updated after rotator cuff surgery. Eleanor now used the AccuQuilt cutting system to cut all of the logs at one time with accuracy. She also shares a new ruler that allows her to cut her own 2 ½” strips.
