Quilt in A Day - Eleanor Burns at Spring Quilt Market 2010

Edited 6/29/10
Lady Eleanor Burns Schoolhouse Presentation Spring Quilt Market 2010

Lady Eleanor is sporting an apron inspired by her new book, Quilt Blocks on American Barns.  You have to know if Lady Eleanor is talking there will be smiles, laughter and everyone will have a great time!! 
This is a beautiful example that was held up for showcase how beautiful the patterns are from Quilt Blocks on American Barns.  This particular quilt was made by Patricia Knoechel and was quilted by Annie Potter, long arm quilter.  The lavender and green really appeals to me. Edit: I applogize for the misspelling of the machine
quilter for Lavender Fields.  The correct spelling is Amie Potter.  Thanks to who ever sent the comment!!


Diana Edgemon made this quilt in warm natural tones from the Kansas Troubles Fabric line. 
Lady Eleanor continues to talk while a crazed Farmer rifles through her belongings.  What fun would a Schoolhouse on Barn Quilt Blocks be without the entire cast right?
I like the energy of the colors unfortunately I did not get the name of the person who made this quilt.  It can be difficult to take photos with one hand and write with the other! 
You know I resonate with this quilt, "The Funny Farm"  made by Sue Peters.  I think this might just explain some of the following photos too. 
Eleanor continues to talk and says something about when Pigs Fly and then came a Flying Pig right up the isle....what a hoot.

Then came a crazy man being chased by an attendant from the local "home of the mentally otherly abled."
I have no idea how this fella managed to escape while still wearing a straight jacket.  Yes, that is a straight jacket for those of you who have never seen one...LOL.
I think they need to use more restraints next time....perhaps his shoe laces should be tied together so he could not run so fast.
After Schoolhouse I was walking down the hall and the Quilt In A Day Clan were gathered chatting.  I asked for a photo and they all smiled.  What a fun loving group. 
Then they insisted I get into the photo.....I was reluctant to stand with such a clan....but I thought I would do them a favor :)  Snickers.

On the Market Floor I stopped by the Quilt In A Day booth several times but Lady Eleanor and Prince Orion were always working.  I decided I would just go ahead and shoot some pix. 

Twice As Nice Plus More is the pattern you are looking at on the back wall.  It includes instructions for 3 quilts.  I just love the scalloped edges on the border below.   They used the Scallops, Vines, & Waves Template by Quilt In A Day.  My mood feels lighter just looking at this quilt again. 
Orion and Eleanor were kind enough to give me this incredible gift pictured below.  You can imagine my surprise and gratitude.
 It includes an Autographed copy of Quilt Blocks on American Barns, a very fun tote bag and project bag,  a pin with a photo of Eleanor, a package of "On Eleanor's Farm" pre-printed fusible web that includes 6 Chickens and 6 Roosters, and a package of "Quilt Blocks on American Barns" fusible web, non-woven fusible interfacing and templates that includes Windmills, Chickens and Roosters, Gambrel Barn Silos, Gothic Barn Roofs, "American Barns" text and half rectangle template.

Quilt Blocks on American Barns has excellent photos and instructions for completing each project.   There are stories of some of the barns Eleanor visited and lots of great pictures too.

Here is a close-up of the pin.....isn't it great? I think so too

You all know that when people give me things I typically have a hard time not giving it away on my blog.....it just seems like the right thing for me to do.  So, I'm going to give all of you an opportunity to win this gift package that includes everything you see above in the photo.  Well.....almost everything......
 
That pin jumped from the photo onto my camera strap and it won't come off.  I'm so terribly sorry to say that it will NOT be included in the giveaway.  I'm really sorry. (fiction.....the part about being sorry ) 

Leave a comment on this post telling me why you want to win this great collection and you have to promise you will make a Barn Quilt or wall hanging.  Non-reply bloggers and anonymous posts will not be counted unless your e-mail address is included in the comment.  The drawing will be done by random number generator on the 4th of July.

Smiles,
Kelly

IHAN Exclusive - Quilting Royalty Is Expecting A Princess

The IHAN blog has the exclusive ultrasound photos of  Princess Kylee Marie who will join a  Royal Quilting Family on or near November 9, 2010.  
Notice the hands in front of the face?  Interesting isn't it?  Do you think that says anything about what family she may belong to?  Looks to me like she is going to have great hand eye coordination....which is extremely important for quilting, don't you think?
This Princess will be absolutely beautiful, intelligent, outgoing, cheerful, hardworking, compassionate, caring, and very creative.  Can you guess what family she belongs to? 


Recognize this fella? Prince Orion Burns.....well.....he is the Proud Father of the beautiful Princess Kylee Marie Burns who is expected to make her arrival sometime in early November.
Teresa, "Mommy", is reportedly doing very well. She is a RN Hospice Nurse.  I don't have any photos to share. I need to stake out "the Royal Compound" to get more photos.  You have no idea how much money I had to pay the Ultra Sound Technician to get these exclusive photos.  I tell you, IHAN has spent countless millions to be "THE FIRST" to publish the story!!! (fiction)

While hiding in the bushes at the Quilt In A Day Royal Headquarters I did happen to hear there are some incredible preparations going on for the newest Princess' Royal Quarters.  When I get wind of the projects.....I'll be sure to share.  You know me....I can't keep my mouth shut/ typing fingers still.

Lady Eleanor with a photo of her adorable Grand Children.





The Royal Grand Children at Play with Lady Eleanor.  I'll bet you 10 bucks that Lady Eleanor has a photo of the Kylee's Ultrasound and she carries it with her.....I bet I win lots and lots and lots of 10 dollar bills!!!

Stay tuned for a review of Eleanor's Latest Book, Quilt Blocks on American Barns.  Don't be surprised if there is a wonderful Giveaway with that post too :)


Smiles,
Kelly

PS:  (You may notice they changed the title from the original title I heard about while hiding in the bushes at the QIAD Compound.....American Tattoos on Biker Babes Booties....guess that was just too "out there" for Eleanor....she took the safe route with the American Barns don't you think?  Me too!! LOL
