About AQS Quilt Stars Trunk Show

Watch from the comfort of your home as host Liz Hammonds, AQS Director of Education, meets with the quilt industry’s biggest stars as they tell stories and showcase some of their favorite quilts.

AQS Quilt Stars Trunk Show with Eleanor Burns will air Friday Dec. 4 & 18 at 10am CST on the popular AQSonline Facebook page and QuiltTV, the AQS YouTube channel.

Eleanor Burns, Dec. 4 & 18

Eleanor BurnsEleanor Burns started a revolution in quilting in 1978 when she self-published her first book Make a Quilt in A Day: Log Cabin Pattern, which detailed simple-to-follow techniques that compacted months of work into merely a day. Eleanor went on to write over a hundred books, host six seasons of Quilt In A Day on PBS, and train thousands of instructors that teach her methods. With that legacy firmly established, in 2005, AQS members chose her – from among thousands of entries – as one of the greatest living contributors to the art and industry of quilting, awarding her and only four others the title of AQS All-American Quilter.
