Thirty years ago Eleanor Burns introduced her first Quilt in a Day book, cultivating a quilt-making revolution. She presented her unique style, a diverse combination of cutting and sewing applications, creating new techniques altogether. Her quilting techniques replaced scissors and templates, with rips and strips, bringing rotary speed to patchwork. She also presented an incredibly rapid stitching system, applying the method of assembly-line sewing to piecework. This invited all types of sewers to participate in an age-old tradition. Her concise, step-by-step directions are easy to grasp, allowing the possibility for anyone to be successful at making a quilt.
