    I was in her shop in San Marcos, CA last year and was told she had just left. That was an "almost", but I've heard she is very friendly if you do meet up with her.

    first I ever heard of her was when she suddenly put a 'boa' around my neck at a show.....she had a great booth there and so interesting......a month and 2 days ago I was in San Marcos to visit relatives and stopped by Quilt-In-A-Day ...there was a fabric sale going on in the werehouse, after all discounts were taken the fabric came to $3.00 a yard. Her shop is actually one of the stops in the Southern California Quilt Run which ends at 5p.m. today. There are thirtysomething shops in the run and it is T, F, S, Sunday two weekends in a row.

    I guess Patty her sister is as close as I will get. Our quilt guild in Warrensburg hosted Patty last September and will again this year. She talks about E all during the event and demo's E's latest. Cannot wait for September 5th this year. If you are in the Warrensburg MO area, come enjoy Patty with us.

    She is just great. I took a class from her this year at Paducah great teacher and very intertaining. Also got to meet Kiley her granddaughter she visited us in class. Also saw her show in the tent, and got her to sign her new book. I look forward to seeing her every year at Paducah. She is the one that got me started in quilting too with her log cabin book.

    A girl friend and I went to her show in Green Bay Wi. many years ago, and as I recall we laughed all night at her stories.
    We learned a lot, and bought some of the patterns and books that were sold after the show.

    I met her last year at the San Diego, CA quilt show. She is sooooo friendly! I bought her book "Birds in the Air" and she signed it "Feather your nest with quilts!" From there I stopped at her store in San Marcos, CA and bought the fabrics to make that quilt. Here is a picture of it.

    I spotted her across the room at her booth at the Houston IQF last year. It was my first time at the show, and I was such a newbie, I was too timid to approach her. I feel a little more confident this year, so maybe...

    I love your quilt. I've had a chance to meet Eleanor Burns in Houston in 1998 & Pudacah 2011. Took a picture with her both time, but somehow deleted the one from Paducah show. I showed her my picture from Houston and she said, "we have changed quite a bit". She was a lot thinner, but I think I am heavier. I enjoyed her tent show and shop. Wish I had more $$$, her prices were great.

    Wish I had one of your dreams!

    I was having a wierd dream the other night - someone stole my lovely new Horizon ......and I fell out of the bed lol! Nothing broken and my machine was right where she belongs. It was a rather rude awakening.

    If you ever get a chance to take a class with Eleanor (outside of your dreams! lol), don't hesitate to do it. She is one of the best and most entertaining quilt teachers I have ever met. We learned so much and laughed so hard. I hope to get a chance to take another class with her. I had just had eye surgery 4 days before the last one and I was sewing with one eye. lol. That was a real challenge!

    Did you know that in July (19-21) Eleanor is being inducted into the Quilters Hall of Fame in Marion, Indiana? I went to the QHOF a couple of years ago and took a class and she was in it too. She sat at my table! I did take a picture of her but didn't think to get her autograph. I also attended a lecture that she gave that year. As you say, she is so sweet and down to earth.
