Quilt in a Day with Eleanor Burns


Put down a deposit to reserve your spot for this tour in February 2018.

Calling all quilters!

Over thirty years ago Eleanor Burns introduced her first Quilt in a Day book, beginning a quilt making revolution. She invited all types of sewers to participate in an age-old tradition using her unique style; a diverse combination of cutting and sewing applications which replaced scissors and templates with rips and strips, bringing rotary speed to patchwork. She also introduced an incredibly rapid stitching system, applying the method of assembly line sewing to piecework. Her concise, step-by-step directions were easy to grasp, allowing anyone to be successful at making a quilt. Eleanor Burns gave quilt makers techniques that compacted months into merely a day, a quilt in a day. Today, as she continues to passionately devote herself to nurturing and motivating thousands of want-to be quilters with needed self-confidence, her name and techniques have become synonymous with quiltmaking.

Enjoy a fun and lively demonstration, class and lunch with Eleanor at her store, Quilt in a Day. She has lots of activity in store for you. Discounts, gifts, time for shopping before departing. No-host meal stop on the way home.

The Quilt in a Day store is located in San Marcos, CA and has a friendly, creative environment for your quilting and shopping pleasure. The store carries a hand-picked selection of 100% cotton quilting fabrics, and of course, all of the Quilt in a Day book titles by Eleanor Burns
