I was fortunate to attend the “Bed turning and Tea”, hosted by Eleanor Burns, at her Quilt in a Day store! I made her a wall hanging, as you can see, and she was so thankful when I gave it to her! It really made me happy when she asked if she could pin it up on the wall for the show, she even mentioned it in the intro of the event/ webinar and said hello to my sweet baby Ray!! I am still editing and working on getting the recording / video of that webinar, I will be posting more about this soon!!
I had such a great time, I learned a lot about the history of quilting. Did you know that in the early 1900’s , you could get your quilt long-arm quilted for $12!?!?!?!?!? And only $2 more for scalloped edges!?!? My goodness, I took so many pictures and notes, so again, stay tuned for that post super soon!!
I was so excited to meet Eleanor, and just beyond ecstatic to have even visited her store, Quilt in a Day, that I bought a GOODIE BAG that you CAN WIN in an upcoming giveaway!
YES, ANOTHER GIVEAWAY, this one will be held with a longer entry time, but a giveaway nonetheless!
This is an over $75 value goodie bag containing an AUTOGRAPHED copy of Eleanor’s newest book, “Quilts from El’s kitchen“, three Eleanor Burns Signature Patterns : Piece of Cake, Zig A Zag and Hole in the Wall, as well as a clear zipper tote that says “Eleanor Burns made a stripper out of me!”, a booklet of recipes for a variety of pastries from El’s kitchen and a cute 8-pack of pretty pink fat quarters!
Pretty neat, huh? 🙂
So if you’re an Eleanor fan, keep your eyes open for when I post this giveaway coming soon! 🙂
Toodles for now,
Diana and Ray<3
