Show 913 - TQS Quilting Legend 2011

Featuring: Eleanor Burns

Posts On: December 19, 2011

In our Series 900 finale, beloved quilter, teacher, author/publisher (of over 100 books!), longtime PBS television personality, and 2011 TQS Quilting Legend, the irrepressible Quilt-in-a-Day Lady, Eleanor Burns opens her wonderful log home and spacious studio to Alex, Ricky, and the TQS gang. After Eleanor shares her quilting history and a generous sampling of quilts, we peek in on students at work on a quick-and-easy quilt using Eleanor's Fabric Frenzy pattern. Along the way, Eleanor demonstrates her technique for sewing partial seams, and takes Alex and Ricky on a horse-drawn carriage ride through the quaint town of Julian, CA, where they sample a slice of the famous local apple pie. All in all, a "delicious" experience you won't want to miss!

Speedy recovery! Miss you on the RFD TV Quilt in a day series, (even my husband). He told me to go on line to find out why your show wasn't on. Hopefully, you'll be coming back soon. Just keep your positive and joyful attitude. Prayers are with you.
