Forty Fabulous Years from Eleanor Burns



Oh, we are gonna have fun with this one!

Eleanor Burns, a teacher and leader in the quilting industry, is celebrating the 40th anniversary of her company, Quilt in a Day.  She put together a collection of blocks that tell stories from her life in a wonderful pattern book called Forty Fabulous Years.  It includes a sampling of sixteen favorite pieced blocks and the ever-loved traditional log cabin.

Let's celebrate with Eleanor by making a Fabulous Forties Sampler too!  This class series will be a great way to develop skills with some of the best piecing methods ever!

We will use the Quilt in a Day Forty Fabulous Years pattern book as our text. This class series will meet each month for an estimated 6 months. The class will be offered on the first Saturday of each month and a repeat session will be offered on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Even if you can’t join us for the whole series, come glean what you can, as you can.  Only $10 per class session!

For the FIRST class in the series, please bring:

  • Your Quilt in a Day Forty Fabulous Years book
  • The Quilt in a Day Log Cabin Ruler*
  • A 6" x 24" acrylic rotary cutting ruler*
  • Your rotary cutter and an 18" x 24" rotary cutting mat*
  • Your fabric selections, based on your choice of quilt size and color way from the Forty Fabulous Years book guidelines. If you'd prefer, you may wish to wait until our first class meeting to purchase your fabrics as we will go over the essential qualities of the quilt design, including guidelines for your fabric selection/placement.
  • Your sewing machine with a ¼” seam foot (remember your foot pedal, power cord, etc.)
  • Your basic sewing supplies including a rotary cutter and small mat, thread snips, fabric marking pens, etc.

* We will have at least one of each available in the classroom for student use, in case you'd like to try them hands-on before purchasing.
