Publisher Comments:

Day and Night will mystify, enchant, and entertain you. It is magical with no smoke and mirrors and the technique is awesome. The pattern is made from strips and the illusion created by using the acrylic template included in the back of the book. Eleanor Burns offers variations on making a quilt with two or three contrasting colors. By using three or four fabric strips, the blocks take on a whole new look.

About the Author

Thirty years ago Eleanor Burns introduced her first Quilt in a Day book, cultivating a quilt-making revolution. She presented her unique style, a diverse combination of cutting and sewing applications, creating new techniques altogether. Her quilting techniques replaced scissors and templates, with rips and strips, bringing rotary speed to patchwork. She also presented an incredibly rapid stitching system, applying the method of assembly-line sewing to piecework. This invited all types of sewers to participate in an age-old tradition. Her concise, step-by-step directions are easy to grasp, allowing the possibility for anyone to be successful at making a quilt.

Eleanor Burns put the instructions in such a very easy manner that a beginner could certainly manage to make this quilt. I made the identical quilt in the black, white and red and felt it to be so stunning, I made a matching pillow and have no desire to give it as a gift. I highly recommend this book to everyone that enjoys quilting.
