Quilt Blocks on American Barns free pdf Join Eleanor Burns as she pays tribute to rural America's barns painted with quilt blocks. This fun tradition began in 2001 in Adams County, Ohio, where Donna Sue Groves painted a quilt block on the family's barn to honor her mother, an avid quilter. The local community joined in and soon painted quilt blocks on their barns. These barns have now become tourist's attractions with maps pinpointing each barn location. Learn a variety of new techniques as Eleanor demonstrates how to make the pieced barn blocks, each with a miniature quilt block pattern. Full color pictures of sample quilts will inspire and give guidance for fabric choices. The book includes patterns for twenty blocks ranging in size from three to eighteen inches. Bonus projects for one-block repeat patterns round out this fun Sampler quilt.

About Eleanor Burns

Thirty years ago, Eleanor Burns introduced her first Quilt in a Day book, beginning a quilt-making revolution. She invited all types of sewers to participate in an age-old tradition using her unique style--a diverse combination of cutting and sewing applications that replaced scissors and templates with rips and strips, bringing rotary speed to patchwork. She also introduced an incredibly rapid stitching system, applying the method of the assembly line sewing to piecework. She has authored over eighty additional books that sell at a rate of well over 6,500 per week. She has trained thousands of instructors throughout the world who teach her quilt-making methods. In 1990, Eleanor pioneered the way people view quilt making with television. Her Quilt in a Day TV series began airing on PBS and is still broadcasting nationwide and abroad. She has also developed her own signature fabric lines, several special-edition sewing machines, and received numerous awards and recognition for her lifetime of achievements.
