    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.

    So sad to hear that. Patricia traveled around the country and did trunk shows and was a delightful lady. She has been to visit here in Southeast KS for the past 10-15 years. She spent one evening in the Methodist Church during a storm with us. Some of the ladies got up and left and the rest of us stayed and said why get out in the storm. She will be missed. Prayers for her family.
    This too shall pass.

    Well I didn't read all the posts and am sorry for the loss of Elinore's sister Judy. I never had the pleasure to meet her. Still sending prayers to the family.
    This too shall pass.

    I will be praying for the family. Eleanor is one of the few that I like to watch
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.

    I had the opportunity to visit with Judy on the phone several times. She was always so pleasant and personable and she always "talked me through my order". I had hoped one day to meet her in person. She will definitely be missed.
