Book Review: "Still Stripping - After 25 Years"!

Review by:Cynthia (my mom)

Quilt in a Day's "Still Stripping" After 25 years by Eleanor Burns:
"Still Stripping" after 25 years by Eleanor Burns is a must have book. This lady is so talented and her quilts are so beautiful! This book is a hard cover, packed with all kinds of quilting "goodies". Whether you have been quilting for years or are a beginner, this book is for you------it is so easy to follow, easy instructions, great illustrations, also yardages are given for all quilt sizes. I loved the personal photo history of Eleanor Burns throughout the book. She is one hard worker.

This book tells you how to press your fabric seams, how to use your rulers, what kind of thread to use. No stone is unturned! Lots and lots of useful information.

Did I mention that these quilts are made with 2 1/2" strips mostly, borders and binding vary in size. I can't wait to try some of these patterns. I would give this book a 10 out of 10. It is well worth the money. A great book to own.

Patterns include:Quarter Log Cabin, Love the Log Cabin, Four Sisters, Nine-Patch Party, Night Glow, Nine-Patch and Stripe, Road to Stardom, Stars and Four Patch, Gadabout, Cornerstone, Early Firecracker, Autograph, Candy Jar, Fabric Gal, Crossing Pathways, Don't Fence Me In, Pillow Sham
