Attended a presentation by Patricia Knoechel Friday night

Pat is Eleanor Burns' sister and she has been promoting Quilt in a Day products for 25 years!!

She talked for a couple hours about two of Eleanor's books and showed the quilts that she made using both of these books.

Quilt Blocks on American Barns

Orion's Star Quilt

The quilts she showed us were fantastic!!  We got to she her Lavendar Hill Farm quilt from page 8 of the Quilt Blocks on American Barns and the American Barns 6" block wallhanging based on Eleanor's quilt which is on the cover of the book.  She walked us through how easy it is to make a Flying Kite block and the Bank Barn block.

Then she showed us how easy it is to make Flying Geese using the Quilt in a Day rulers.  Flying geese units are used in a number of the quilt blocks and the Orion's Star Quilt blocks.

Pat very graciously signed our books on page 8 near her Lavendar Hill Farm quilt.
