    In search of....Eleanor Burns pattern

    I was watching Quilt in a Day a couple of wks ago & Eleanor Burns made a quilt using 4 strips. 3 of the strips were cut the same size (2.5in I think) . the 4th strip was wider. She stitched 2 of the same width together and then the remaining narrower strip to the wider strip. the strips were stacked, cut & sewn and then cut on the diagonal. Does anyone know the name of this pattern and know which Eleanor Burns book it is in?

    The Night and Day or Day and Night quilt is strips then cut with a special ruler for Star Blocks. From what I have seen of her patterns, most start as strips. Try her Website to see the patterns.

    Could it have been the 'Tossed nine patch'?
    If you scroll down this page there's a video, otherwise you might find it among other videos or webinars recorded.

    I think you may be thinking about the "triple Twist Quilt". Here is a link.

    Can you go back and watch the video again in order to find out the correct name of the pattern? I have watched as well as made many of Eleanor's patterns and I have never had to try to figure out the name of the pattern it was always given as part of the show. Good luck.

    I just found it!!!! It's called Fabric Girl quilt. Thanks for your responses. I saw it on TV so I couldn't go back there to find it. Found it on YouTube - after scrolling thru lots and lots of Quilt in A Day videos!!
