    As a women's history student I would like to know, how has Eleanor Burns's books about vintage quilts helped you in your understanding of women's history? Did you learn some history from her books? Have you been inspired to make a vintage-style quilt because of something you read in her books? Do you even LIKE Eleanor Burns? LOL I'm really looking forward to your answers. :) Thanks!

    eleanor burns is my fav. and i really respect her for rising from pinching pennies to leading a huge quilting empire. i have not met her, but it has been said that she is as nice in person as she is in her videos.

    Her Log Cabin in a Day seems to be one of the easiest patterns I have read. I have going on a retreat in a few days and I am going to make the lap size

    Yes, love her! I was lucky enough to meet her at the Houston Quilt Show last year and she is just as sweet in person. I have a few of her books, but I like Egg Money Quilts which has some historical references in it as well!!

    I like her quilting techniques and her teaching style - makes it look easy. But I have not read any of her books on quilt history. I was not aware she had written any. I will have to look for them.
