I am an Eleanor Burns fan so when I found free videos available on her website yesterday I was so excited. There is absolutely nothing on TV and with several winter storms making their way to our neck of the woods I was glad to find something to watch during my sewing breaks. Now I just hope the power doesn’t go out. So if you are a fan of Eleanor I just want to share my find go to the Quilt in a Day home page and on the right side toward the bottom you will find the link to the videos. She has some really recent videos that go a long with a new book that she is having published with a really fun block of the month quilt that has a barn theme. These barns remind me of my summers spent on my Grandmothers farm in Iowa as a young girl so I know I will have to have this book and attempt to make this quilt. She has also started a blog and I think I left the first comment, that’s how new it is so check that out also here, at www.stripquilter.com.
I did finish the baby quilts for my sisters twins. Two quilts in one month during the holidays was quite an accomplishment for me. I am very happy with the way they turned out. the patterns I used for these are from a Moda Bakeshop pattern called the Pinwheel Baby Quilt designed by Jodie at Pleasant Home and Monica at Happy Zombie’s Two Happy pattern. Both patterns were offered free and were a breeze to follow. It is so nice for these ladies to share their talents over the internet. Today is her shower and I was hoping to be there, but with storms on their way I decided that I should stay home and not drive the mountain roads in them. I can’t wait to see the pictures and hear about all the wonderful things she received. She has some really special friends and they are arranging a lot of special things for this shower.
If you love Eleanor and quilting and barns, be sure to check out the free videos!
Enjoy the show!
