About this title

Synopsis:

Before the 1940's, most eggs were produced on rural farms with small flocks that scratched their way around the barnyard. The farmer's wife was usually responsible for caring for her chickens and the money received from the sale of the eggs was hers. Surely, some fabric was purchased with this precious fund and from that came the quilt patterns uniquely associated with the Depression years of the 1930's. During a time of hardship in America, there were still many things for which to be thankful. Life was simple, people neighborly, and quilts not only useful but also an extraordinary expression of imagination. Journey back to the times when milk was 14 cents a quart and bread 9 cents a loaf.With over a year in planning, testing and writing, Quilt in a Day is delighted to announce Egg Money Quilts-A 1930's Vintage Sampler. Egg Money Quilts is not only a collection of twelve vintage quilt block patterns with two layouts, but also a treasury of extra projects created from the blocks. Join Eleanor as she guides you through her techniques to re-create the flavor of the "good old days." The book contains over 200 pages, in full color, with sample quilts, step by step instructions and illustrations, yardage and cutting charts, and assistance in fabric selection. Enjoy a visual quilt show with photographs of a bounty of quilts and projects.The new book will carry the tones of the era with snippets of lifeNot only will Egg Money Quilts become one of your favorite quilt books; you will enjoy reading the book just for the pleasure of it.Block patterns included:Grandmother's Flower Garden, Road to California, Turkey Tracks, Rosebuds, Old Maid's Puzzle, Dresden Plate, Double Wedding Ring, Rocky Road to Kansas, Peony, Friendship, Christian Cross, Garden Walk, Double Ax Head.

About the Author:

Twenty nine years ago Eleanor Burns introduced her first Quilt in a Day book, cultivating a quiltmaking revolution. She presented her unique style, a diverse combination of cutting and sewing applications, creating new techniques altogether. Her concise step by step directions are easy to grasp, allowing the possibility for anyone to be successful at making a quilt. Eleanor Burns gave quiltmakers techniques that compacted months into merely a day, a quilt in a day, spreading her vibrant enthusiasm within everyone. She has motivated thousands of want-to-be quilters with needed confidence and assurance. Altogether, the impact of her influences opened the door to a renewal. Her efforts sowed the seeds that have grown into many techniques that are commonly used today. Since 1978 when she self-published her first book "Make a Quilt in a Day: Log Cabin Pattern," she has authored over seventy five additional books. Throughout the world today, there are thousands of inst!ructors teaching her quiltmaking methods. Her first Quilt in a Day TV series began airing on PBS in 1990 and is still broadcast nationwide and abroad and now her shows can be seen on the world wide web on QNN and Quilters TV.
