before you speak T.H.I.N.K. T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

I actually met a lady who is in Eleanor Burns' Quilt Guild -- and get this -- she has been the "tester" on new patterns -- the one who takes the directions and sews the sample to see if it translates to those of us with only normal quilt IQs....probably as close to Eleanor Burns as I'll ever get too!!!!

I have met Eleanor many times. She is always accessible at her tent show and sale barn at the Paducah quilt show. I always go to her meet and greet there too. It's a lot of fun and she feeds you great! No standing in a vendor booth for a limited amount of time and then disappearing for her! She is out from a.m. to p.m smiling and greeting everyone and mingling with her fans. Her sons and family are just as friendly and accepting of the fans as she is. She is a true quilt legend.

No offense to Eleanor, but if I'm going to have a dream, would much rather have Tim McGraw star in it.

I would love to meet Eleanor Burns. Up until a couple of months ago did not really quilt as a hobby or fun. It was to make gifts for the family, weddings, baby showers, etc. Then one day a friend told me about Eleanor Burns and her shows so I went home and thought well I watch one and see. It was her show on how to make a New York Beauty the easy way. Let me tell you, after that show I just had to make one and have been quilting since. I am even trying to start my own business all because of Eleanor Burns. Thanks Eleanor you have truely inspired me. Guess I should find my way to Paducah next year.LOL
