    it has been confirmed via a different quilt venue that Pat Knoechel, sister to Eleanor Burns and a great quilter in her own right, has passed away today.

    Oh my goodness, what that Pat? I'm not sure if she had another Sister. Either way, it's so sad. I feel for her.

    According to Eleanor Burns quilt in a day web site, it was Eleanor's sister Judy that died. Here is the info:

    It is with a sad and heavy heart that I tell you that Eleanor's youngest sister Judy passed away on Tuesday evening. Judy worked for Quilt in a Day for as long as the company was in existence. She was the wholesale/warehouse manager. She wrote these books for Quilt in a Day "Stockings & Small Quilts" and "Courthouse Steps". Judy was also the creator and maker of all the Mini Magnet quilt kits on the website. In the early days, Judy took care of Grant and Orion while Eleanor was on the road promoting her books.

    Judy will be greatly missed by all of us at Quilt in a Day. She was a lovely and generous lady and a very good friend.
