A quilt pattern that has been an enigma to some and a complicated mess of little squares to others is now as simple as cutting and sewing strips together! Thanks to Eleanor Burns' methods, the quilts actually can come together in one day. Her "system" is also adaptable to bargello quilts, and any number of other designs. Ms. Burns also provides her simple and fast method for applique using fusible interfacing. The Waterlily Quilt design has been one of my favorites since I first saw it, but I knew I'd never have the talent for the piecework or the applique. Eleanor has again placed a complex design within my reach. This book is great for beginning and experienced quilters of all ages and tastes. Definitely worth adding to your bookshelf.
I wanted an easy, dynamic quilt for a wall hanging, and had been looking at other trip around the world patterns. It seemed as if I was going to have to cut out lots and lots of little squares. But then I happened upon this quilt book, ordered it, and strip quilted the top in a day!I am looking forward to making another larger one with different color combinations. I am pretty much a novice, but this book is clear and precise.
This is an excellent book for beginning quilters. One can learn how to make a beautiful quilt that will last a lifetime in a short amount of time. Eleanor Burns is very good at explaining the quilt process.
My mother in law and I watch Eleanor Burns on tv.When she did the episode on quick trip quilts, we immediatelyrushed out to select fabric for our versions of the quilts on theshow and in this book and ordered the book.We have made at least one of each so far and now we have tosandwich them and quilt them out.Will continuing following the show (we tape them all) and willcontinue purchasing the companion books because Eleanor'sinstructions are the simplest, clearest to follow that I have used inover 45 years of quilting.
I was lucky to get such a good deal on this book has some beautiful quilts, I was surprised when I looked through it. I have several picked out to make. Very pleased. Eleanor always does such a good job of showing you exactly what you need to do. Takes away all the worry when starting a new kind of quilt I've never tried before.
I just finished making up one of the quilts in this book...easy to follow instructions, beautiful artwork and photography, another winner from Eleanor Burns. I recommend it highly.
Face it Eleanor Burns books have very well done instructions. I had her first "Trip" book but couldn't find it--- somewhere in the house. So I ordred this new one. The book is very well done. If you are looking for a trip around the world pattern the directions could not be better. i made this quilt top in florals and it is beautiful.
I have made several of Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day. They are fun to sew. Now that my grand daughter is in her twenties and has a new sewing machine. I decided to give her three quilt books for Christmas. I'm sure she will enjoy them as much as I.
