Eleanor Burns started her sewing adventures as a child who grew up loving to sew, quilt, and craft. In 1978 Eleanor self-published her first book, “Make a Quilt in a Day: Log Cabin Pattern.” She is now an award-winning quilting personality, nationally celebrated author, respected teacher/trainer, and industry role model. In 1990, Eleanor helped expose quilting to an even wider national audience through her, “Quilt in a Day” television series on PBS. It’s still being broadcast and is even being recognized as a valuable teaching tool in other countries, including Japan. Eleanor continues to inspire quilters with her easy-to-learn techniques, expert training methods, and a passion for education that shines behind her charming sense of humor.
“It’s an honor to be working with Eleanor Burns,” said Steve Nabity, AccuQuilt’s Chief Energizing Officer. “Her dedication to quilting has inspired so many and her techniques are truly revolutionary. Opening our gallery to her is the perfect way to showcase her stunning work to the public. I know they will be as inspired as we are!”
