    Eleanor Burns is very ill.

    All I know is what is on Facebook: Eleanor Burns is quite sick. Open-heart surgery sick.

    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Good grief..... I love Eleanor! Hope she'll be O.K. soon. Didn't her sister pass away not all that long ago from heart related issues?

    Sending prayers her way for good recovery. Wonder if that's why her show hasn't been on for awhile. Her shows weren't as repetitive as others.

    Holy moly. Not good news. I hope they fix her up. She has taught me a lot and I do enjoy her.

    Can you link a site for us? Mr Google has nothing. At least I couldn't find it.

    I feel the same way. She is the last of the quilting teacher I have learn to quilt from.

    Oh goodness. I just attended a talk at our LQS by her sister, Pat K and she said they had lost two sisters before their 70's and she and Eleanor were still going strong. (()) to her and her family.

    Dear Friends,
    Life is what happens while we're busy making other plans and quilting. This is certainly true for me. At my doctor's suggestion, I will be having heart surgery next week. I am fortunate to have an excellent staff at Quilt in a Day to carry on as I recuperate.

    I appreciate your prayers and good wishes as I mend.

    Sincerely,
    Eleanor Burns





    This is the post from Facebook this morning...I learned how to make quilts with her books! Love this lady. She needs our prayers right now

    Prayers for Eleanor, her family and the medical staff taking care of her. She is a wonderful teacher and fun loving person. I have learned a lot from her as I am sure many others have too.

    Thank you for this information, Eleanor and her program on PBS is what got me started in the world of quilting. Log Cabin in a Day was my very first quilt and the rest is history. My thoughts and prayers go out to her, her family and friends as she goes through this time in her life. God Bless all!

    I was just finishing up one of her quilt patterns and thought about how many I have made from her books. There are many quilters I like but she is my favorite of all. A great lady.

    I was fortunate to take a class from Eleanor a few years ago. She was so much fun! She made sure that every one of us had a great time.

    There was a picture of her at Disneyland posted yesterday. She did say she was going to some heart surgery next week. I wish her a speedy recovery. She was very influential in my quilting. We use to love to watch her on PBS.

    Our RFD tv channel still airs her old, old shows and yes, I keep watching. I don't quilt much but she has taught me a lot about quilting.
