    I'm a newbie to the quilting world, who's Elinor Burns? Not that it really matters because a new quilting magazine is reason enough to be excited!!

    Oh cool! That sounds like fun!

    Eleanor Burn's has a show called "Quilt in a Day" here it is on Friday Mornings about 9AM, on PBS, it's a great show. She always has tips and tricks to sewing blocks together more easily. She's quite fun to watch. Her current series is egg money quilts, so she talks about the Depression and penny glass, ect. it's nice to get a little bit of history with the blocks.

    El Burns is my idol. She uses the best methods and her books are easy to follow.
    You can watch her on the web at Quilters TV. Or you can join QNNTV for 24 bucks a yr. and see all her shows.

    i do record her shows but have never recorded the quilt in day shows - not on purpose, they just aren't the ones being shown in my area right now. The magazine will be really neat - something a bit different then what is already out there!

    Bevanger,
    I think she creates her shows around the books. You can find Egg Money Quilts on Amazon.com and it's way less expensive than what i paid at the quilt shop. YOu can purchase it new or buy a used copy for even less. To save on shipping, I always make sure that I order over $25 worth of merchandise to qualify for free shipping. Then you'll already have the patterns and instructions. I think the books are more complete instructions than the show.

    I belong to Cotton Patch Quilters of Kern in Bakersfield, CA. We had Pat Knoeckle (spelling?) (Eleanor's sister) speak at our meeting this month. She comes up here once a year from the So. California coast where they both live, and always shows us such great quilting tips and shortcuts. Plus she is so much fun to talk with, and very generous with her time and information when her formal talk is done. They are fun gals, and I really appreciate all the shortcuts they develop and share. I can't wait to see the new magazine. I know it will be fun and easy to follow.

    They often show the Quilt in a Day programme on Quilters TV. If you look over at the links on the right when you're on Quilters TV, there's a link to "featured designers" and you'll find her there if she's not on the daily lineup.

    If you go to www.quiltinaday.com web site you can get in on the scoop about the magazine. They are even asking for suggestions about what you would like to see in the magazine. there is a community forum with lots of people discussing quilting etc. Does not cost anything to join and its another quilt forum for you to spend your time in. LOL Marge

    Bev, you can purchase the DVD's at her website for the different series that she does. The individual videos are on Quilterstv, but that site doesn't let you pick and choose the individual shows like QNNTv.com does. IMHO, QNNTv is well worth the $24 per year just to be able to go to the exact show for the pattern you're working on.

    She announced the magazine at the Show and Tell in Des Moines. Personally, I can't wait to subscribe!
