Eleanor Burns goes back to the country for American fall and winter traditions in this seven-episode holiday Quilt in a Day® series. She decorates her holiday table with handmade gifts and ornaments, makes a basketful of woodsy quilts, then spends a cozy Christmas just like our pioneer ancestors. Join Eleanor as she celebrates winter under the pines.
Eleanor introduces the Bears in the Woods quilt, made with Log Cabin, Tree, and Bears Paw blocks and Flying Geese patches. She takes viewers through fabric selection and cutting strips for the Log Cabin block, then decorates her Thanksgiving table with a Log Cabin Table runner.
Eleanor celebrates the northern woods with a strip-pieced Tree block, then sets a herd of appliqued caribou galloping across a Christmas tree skirt.
Eleanor puts bear tracks on her quilt with the Bears Paw block. She combines the Bears Paw with appliqued bears and trees to make a charming wall hanging. Also, Eleanor turns Bear's Paw blocks into holiday gift boxes perfect for wrapping special treasures.
