Quilt in a Day
Over thirty years ago, Eleanor Burns introduced her first "Quilt in a Day" book and by doing so, cultivated a quilt-making revolution. Her unique style includes a diverse combination of cutting and sewing applications and the creation of new techniques altogether. Burn's quilt books and quilt patterns teach a wide variety of quilt techniques: strip piecing, applique, scrap quilting, crazy quilts, paper piecing and piecing stars, triangles and squares. Viewers find numerous quilt border treatments, methods to bind a quilt, tie a quilt, layer a quilt, miter a binding corner and so much more. Many of her quilt books and quilt patterns are featured within the program. They contain yardage and cutting instructions for a variety of quilts. The quilting techniques viewers learn replace scissors and templates with rips and strips, bringing rotary speed to patchwork.
