Designer Tidbits: Eleanor Burns - Giveaway Closed

Eleanor Burns of Quilt in a Day is a personal hero of ours. She is fun, perky and an icon in the world of quilting. We are lucky enough to have her on the blog today chatting about her latest collection for Benartex, Ellie Ann. And to top it off, we have a giveaway for you! You will not want to miss this!


Q: Where did you find your original inspiration for this collection?
A: I wanted a traditional print from nature that would work well in today's more contemporary household. I think the modern quilter will love this line; the colors are so bright and fresh!


Q: What TV show or movie does your collection fit best in?
A: I watch the Hallmark Channel where all the movies are sappy and have happy endings. Any love story will do!


Q: Tell me about your sewing machine(s). What kinds do you have and how many?
A: I have been using Babylock Sewing machines for the past six years. The Symphony is my favorite. I have a dozen of them at the Bear's Paw Ranch for students to use in a classroom above my garage. There's also one in each of my three sewing rooms: one on my "set", one in Quilt in a Day's sewing room, and one in my second home sewing room. I'm not bragging or complaining! Babylock furnished me with a machine for every Koala sewing table I own. My favorite feature is automatic pivoting with needle down.

Q: What is your favorite part of the fabric industry?
A: I love the feel of the fabric! I can be completely stressed and after I stoke a piece of fabric, my worries just seam to disappear.


Q: From what aspect of your life do you draw creativity?
A: My inspiration always comes from nature or history. I have a log cabin in the mountains of Julian, CA where I watch the change of seasons. The colors can take your breath away.

I've done several books and lines of fabric that dig back in history, such as a 30's line for Egg Money Quilts, and 40's patriotic line for Victory Quilts. I select traditional patterns and fabric to help tell my story.


Q: What is your favorite print in the collection?
A: My favorite is the large scale Rose, 1227. I like the graceful lines of a rose and the smell it brings to a room. You can have more blooms in a season by simply trimming the bushes.

Q: What is the most challenging part of the design process?
A: It's challenging for the whole line to be cohesive and flow. To use the fabric in a quilt, you need variety as large scales, ones that read solid, small scales but not spotty, some fussy cuts, stripes, different values, and textures.


Q: What are your favorite and least favorite colors and why?
A: I am a Red, white and blue gal through and through with my birthday on July 3rd. My least favorite color in general is Orange. However, I really like the Juicy Mango in the Ellie Ann line. Normally I can only bring myself to use orange in the fall but now I can see that I will be using it all year long!

Want a taste of Ellie Ann for yourself? We are giving away one fat quarter of each print in the collection to a lucky winner! UPDATE Barbara Edmondson was chosen as our winner! Please send your full shipping information to chelsey[at]fatquartershop[dot]com. Thanks for playing, everyone!

DebrafromMD said...

I love this whole collection but my favorite is the Rose Ellie Ann Floral. I'm tired of winter and this floral makes me think of summer's roses.

Aunt Marti said...

My favorite is the "Sweet Mango Garlands" -- it looks like the print is cross-stitched!

Barb Edmondson said...

I like the pink flowers on a white background. It looks so clean and fresh, old but new, and my favorite color is pink. I really like the whole line!

Terrie said...

I love the lilac and the peach! I could make some pretty fantastic things with it. It reminds me of my Grandma

LisaVH said...

How on earth do I pick just one?! I am in love with the Peach collection. I rarely see fabrics in this color scheme that are so pretty. My favorite is probably the Sweet Mango Morning Sun. It is just so cheerful and feminine.

Apple Avenue Quilts said...

I love the tiny rose prints and if the truth is told I love the entire line. It's so nice to see a lovely, flowery line with amazing colors. Thank you for the chance on this wonderful giveaway.

Chris said...

It is hard to really choose just one but I will say the China Blue Floral is my favorite. Such a soothing fabric.

VERY difficult to pick just one; I love the Petite Rose in China Blue.

Sunnybec said...

They are all so pretty! I like Sweet Mango Morning. Thanks for the chance.

Anonymous said...

Jane Ritz said...

I love the pinks. It's my goal to make a quilt for my 3 granddaughters. Your fabric and work is just beautiful.

Melanie said...

LOVE the Pink Petite Rose Print. I can see this as the star in a modern quilt (along with all of the other prints in the line).

Reader Owl said...

So pretty. Right now I would love some of the green strips for a project. All the stripes would be very useful!

OMG I love the whole line! If I had to pick, Id pick the lilac. So pretty!

Cindy Swoveland said...

Bee said...

I love all the pink ones! It's hard to choose. I think it would be the large scale floral with the dots in pink!

Jenny L said...

I love the pink with the roses and the polka dots!

mary kay said...

Love all the Colors! So beautiful!!

Beth said...

I have always been a Burns fan and love the Ellie Ann Pale Blue on Cream Ellie Floral Yardage
SKU# 1227-05. Such a soothing and pretty print. I can imagine a spring quilt with that as the focus fabric.

Caren D said...

I love china blue Ella floral.... I LOVE anything polka dot, love the shade of blue and the tone on tone flowers....

grannyanne said...

Tangelo! How bright and beautiful this one is. After the grayness of winter this one sparkles!

Nancy said...

I usually don't like orange too much, but the Tangelo just jumps out at me! (Plus, it reminds me of Creamsicles! LOL!)

kaye said...

My favorite is the tangelo stripe, but I love how all the colors look together, so fresh and springy and happy!

CM said...

I love love love the Garlands versions, all three... Perfect idea of cross stitch, "kitsch" and cosy happiness!

Jonna said...

The China Blue Petite Rose reminds me of the fabric my mom used to patch my baby blanket nearly 40 years ago. Warm and fuzzy memory.

Lynn Wilson said...

Love all the lilac prints, and the peach, two of my favorite colors.

Sally said...

I was really drawn to the Tangelo petite rose. It is a different color and I love the small floral prints.

Sarina said...

I've always been drawn to stripes and I don't have any "orange-ish" stripes in my collection for a quilt I'm still collecting for, for my mom so I'd say the tangelo stripe but I also love a good cheater/collage fabric for the back!

Sallie said...

These are beautiful! My favorite is Ellie Ann China Blue Morning Sun because I love roses, and I love blue. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Anonymous said...

Just love these fabrics. They remind me of spring China Blue reminds me of the early spring flowers poking threw the snow. Meadow Morning fresh green grass.They are a lovely collection. They would be great to make a mother's day quilt.

valerie clinansmith said...

The peach collection is to die for--just beautiful for so many things I could do

Rachell said...

What a sweet feminine collection! Totally can get my girl on if I win (I'm the only girl in my house right now).
Normally I would pick the cobalt/lilac colors because purple is my favorite color, but this time I love the Twilight print in Moss green, then the Cobalt/lilac. Love them all!

Anonymous said...

Chris S said...

I'm with Eleanor! The 1227 print with it's large roses on a polka dot background is awesome.

Brenda said...

I love the Pink Petite Rose Print. I think this would look really pretty in a Dresden quilt.I think this whole line would lend itself well to a Dresden quilt or a summery type quilt.

momawake said...

It's so hard to pick one, so I picked the Petite Rose in all the colorways. :)

Stacey Napier said...

Love the whole line - but I would love that Tangelo Ann stripe for bindings on some of my bright quilts. Great stash builder!

Wow, great group of fabrics. My favorite print is Sweet Mango Morning Sun. I love all the mangos and pinks.
Jane(dot)bitz(at)gmail(dot)com

Sassy Sewin' said...


I really like "Rose Ellie" from the Sweet Pea Ellie Ann collection. I'm partial to the vibrant feminine colors but also because my Gram used to call me Sweet pea and Petunia as term of endearment.

kbo said...

That was a great article interviewing Eleanor. I am sweet on the Sweet Pea Ellie Ann.

M.W. said...

I would have to pick the Peach grouping.. love them!! Have the perfect pattern for the entire group of fabrics! Love, love, love this collection!!! Great job of designing!!

Unknown said...

I love all the colors. The garland piece is a favorite. One of many. The peach collection takes me back to the 1970's. that color with the green was very popular. Especiallly with weddings and the brides floppy hats instead of veils. I love your books and you are so nice to visit with.

Mary Caldwell said...

Debra Lee said...

I love the freshness of the
Ellie Ann Sweet Mango Petite Rose Yardage
SKU# 1234-28. Such updated colors and I would even make sheets from this!

Rae R said...

I love them all, but if I had to choose one I think it would be the large mango floral with dots. Thanks! raybanfandango at hotmail dot com

BeachQuilter said...

The Mango on Cream caught my eye right away. This line is just beautiful!

Beth@ bmarine@kuminlaw.com said...

I have always been such a fan of Eleanor Burns. I remember watching her on TV and chuckling when she threw fabric over her shoulder, such fun. I have the PERFECT project in mind for this fabric and would LOVE to win! Thanks

Lisa K said...

Pick just one? Oh my that's hard! But I like the Petite Pink Rose.

hiyacinth said...

The cream Morning Sun would make beautiful background.

Kathy Stewart said...

I love the blue petite rose. I'm partial to blue and it has such a sweet look to it.

B Malcolm said...

My favorite is the Sweet Pea and the fabric is the Pink Wallpaper. A beautiful color reminds me of a little girls room.

Rita said...

It's all beautiful but I particularly like Ellie Ann Mango on Cream large floral.

Auntie Em said...

I love them all, but I like the Rose floral the most. It has a lovely range of dark and light rose colors.

Johanna said...

I love the Ellie Ann tangelo petite rose. It reminds me of the log cabin quilt my grandmother made for me. I finally had my own bedroom and the color in my room was mostly peach and some green. I think that is the quilt that really got me interested in making a quilt.

Janet said...

Beautiful fabric! My favorite is the Moss Twilight - it's a really rich green!

Thanks for the opportunity!

Betty said...

Love them all, but China Blue Petite Rose just might be my favorite!

VickiT said...

These are all beautiful fabrics. Choosing one is really tough, but I'd say the one I like most would be Ellie Ann Blue Petite Rose. That one reminds me of fabric my Grandmother used to make her dresses she wore daily. It reminds me of her and sadly, she's been gone a very long time now.

Ellen Pruett said...

Oh, my goodness. Picking just one is difficult because I drooled over all the colors. I completely get the fact that her worries disappear when touching fabric. I get that! Okay...so back to my favorite...I guess it would have to be the Ellie Ann Lilac. So fresh!!

Maxwells said...

Oh I like the pink petite rose. I am expecting my 4th girl this summer, so I am liking the pinks :)

Randi Kaplan Wells said...

So many beautiful fabrics! And I am very into green, so the Moss Twilight and the Meadow Ann Stripe are definitely my favorites:)

Debbie Bojko said...

I love the petite rose collection, but the mango petite rose is my favorite. The Ellen Allen collection is so beautiful I could see a quilt made from it being gorgeous.
Fuzzy509@gmail.com

Angie said...

I think the Mango Petite Rose would look great in my room.

Lisa Marie said...

I like Ellie Ann Sweet Mango Ellie Floral Yardage
SKU# 1227-28
The combination of the flowers and dots is fun and the color is very cheery and spring-like.

Beverly said...

The Ellie Pink Floral - it's like floating in a pink cloud, or hold a newborn wrapped in pink, or a hug from a loved one. It makes me feel loved. Can fabric do that?

Sandy D said...

What a great line Ellie Ann is. I have to pick Ellie Ann Moss Twilight. I love green. the striped Ellie Ann I would love too because I love to do binding in a stripe.

Jeanie said...

Love the peach colorway the best, specifically Sweet Mango Garlands. Great collection!

Monica said...

The Cobalt Twilight because it reminds me of my mom.

Kim said...

This collection is beautiful! I think my favorite print is the Petite Rose--in Rose. I also really like the stripes and the tone on tone that almost has a paisley design to it.

Cotton Blossom said...

Mango on Cream is my favorite. I'm drawn to the roses and the orange/peach. It's refreshing seems to me that we've had enough red/blue/aqua for the last couple years.

Rhonda J. said...

I love them all, but the pinks mostly. I am going to have a new granddaughter soon and I can see the possibilities. But really, they are all wonderful!

Barbara K. said...

The whole Sweet Pea collection just speaks to me. It would be hard to choose just one. I can see a baby quilt, or bed quilt for a cottage bedroom, a prayer shawl, etc.... just love it all.

Laurel said...

I love all the large tone on tone floral fabrics. They just seem so elegant.

Madeline said...

pale blue on cream is my favorite, because it has a touch of pink, which is my second favorite colore after blue, and blue roses are a special thing with my husband and me.

Four dogs and one quilter said...

Love the Tanjelo floral, orange is one of my favorites.

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

Love the blues..it reminds me of our family week at the beach, the breezes and the "AHHH" of being there. I just love blue no matter what. :) My very first quilt project in the 80's was an Emily Burns Quilt-in-a-day quilt! Thanks for the give away!!!

Mary Ann said...

I like any of the Peach line. Wonderful colors and prints.

KRubin said...

It looks like my original comment didn't go through. I absolutely love the Moss Twilight fabric. The floral design is beautiful and the color will match my newly remodeled bedroom perfectly!

Miss Jean said...

I just love the Ellie Ann Mango on Creme floral. It would make such a beautiful border to highlight all the other peach and green prints.

sandyb said...

Wonderful!! This whole collectioin is stunning. I would pick the Sweet Mango. It is so sweet with the combination of flowers with the dots - two of my favorites but in a softer color of mango - who could not love htis and use it for bags, pillows, etc.

Thank you so much!!!

Moss Twilight. All the Twilights are gorgeous, but I love that mossy green color!

I love her answer on the design process and so agree with her about a large and small print, stripes and a little solid, my favorite from this collection is Ellie Ann Tangelo Ann Stripe, because I love using stripes for my binding.

Susie Johnson said...

I love the Lilac collection especially the green!

Debbie Weishaar said...

I like all of the collection but my favorite is the Lilac Collection. I could see it making a beautiful quilt for my aunt.

Rachelle said...

I really love the Pink Wallpaper, it's so classic and would look great in either a quilt or as a dress!

Jane S. said...

What beautiful fabrics! I really like the Pink Collage because I have such trouble making up my mind, and there's a little bit of all the goodness in that yardage. :)

I love the Lilac - but seriously they are all beautiful!!

loriginsberg said...

I love the wallpaper prints, especially the mango. I would have wallpaper on every wall if I could. I love the vintage look of this fabric. Thank you for featuring Eleanor Burns. Every year when I go to the Road to California Quilt Show I get to see her in person. She is just one of the loveliest people I have ever met. She is truly a gem.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I am a gal who loves flowers, and my favorite is Pink wallpaper. What gorgeous prints. Love these fabrics. Love Eleanor. She is truly the pioneer of modern day quilting.

Sharon said...

I love them all, but the Pink Wallpaper is my favorite.

Deborah said...

Gorgeous fabrics. My favourite is the Blue Petite Rose.

Andee said...

I can't even pick between the lilac and the peach much less pick the best print. They are all great!

scottylover said...

OMG! These are gorgeous! I love the pink wallpaper because it reminds me of a print my grandmother had in her house and pink is my favorite color!

llavmc said...

I love the Sweet Mango Ellie Floral! Thanks for the giveaway.

jmniffer said...

I like them all but my favorite is Ellie Ann Pale Blue on Cream as it reminds me of my Mom. Gorgeous fabrics, thanks for the chance to win them.

Ginger said...

1227-24 is my favorite.

ginger c at gmail dot com

Lisa in Port Hope said...

I have a really hard time picking and using greens, but I like the look of the Moss Twilight.

Sharon P said...

Ellie Ann Pink Garlands Yardage is a beautiful fabric!

Bonnie May said...

My favorite in each color grouping is the stripe with roses in forefront. It brings depth to the design.

Pat O said...

Oh, my ... it so hard to decide on just one, but I think I would have to choose the Ellie Ann Blue Petite Rose, because it reminds me of my Mom. Her favorite color was blue, and her bedroom wallpaper was very similar to this design. Every room in her home had blue incorporated in one way or another. I personally am a pink person and love the Pink Petite Rose. Thanks!!

pasqueflower said...

So hard to pick a favorite, but I love the Wallpaper prints in all the colorways. So pretty and feminine.

Betsy said...

I too am a Red, White & Blue gal with my birthday on the 4th of July, so I am immediately drawn to the blues. I would probably have to pick 2 prints: China Blue Morning Sun and Cobalt Stripes. I have to have the stripes even if there aren't any stars!

Kristine said...

I can see the Pink Ellie Floral as a very cute shirt. Loving it the most at this moment, although I love all the colors and prints.

Pam Johnston said...

I am drawn to the Rose Petite Rose -- my parents received a set of sheets at their wedding 61 years ago, and the sheets are still lovingly wrapped in tissue paper and packed in the cedar chest. The print of the sheets is almost identical to the Rose Petite Rose . . . I would love to make a quilt with a vintage feel and this is the perfect fabric collection to get started!!! (Pam -- Dogshowmom@aol.com)

Melissa said...

I really like the pink petite rose. It's so sweet.

Jill said...

Wonderful fabrics that all caught my eye! But the blue roses on a cream background really caught my eye. Of course, the pink ones and lilac ones did too... Decisions, decisions!

Beth said...

I really like the Ellie Ann sweet mango garlands; it reminds me of my grandmother's house.

BamaCarol said...

Oh I love stripes so I would say the Meadow Ann stripe. Lovely colors!

NanaV said...

This was very difficult, in a good way! My favorite is the Sweet Mango Petite Rose.. It reminds me of summer pajamas my grandmother sewed for me as a little girl! Just love the colors and design!

Love the sweet peas and the lilacs, Ellie Ann! The blue petite rose is my favourite, reminds me of my mom's African violets -- and she's always been an amazing green thumb.

~Diana

Mommarock said...

Ellie Ann Pink Wallpaper Yardage. This one has to be my favorite. I've always looked for that fabric that could remind me of my grandmas wallpaper, and here it is!! My grandma's house was the most special place in the world. Everyone gathered there and it was a huge family. How we fit all of those people in that house was amazing, but we managed, and the food flowed, and the hospitality and cheer is something I strive for now with my family. A touch of nostalgia.

Beth said...

I love all the "twilight" prints - just something about that tone on tone I really love!

ozone3 said...

Love the Petite Rose print. Very delicate print!!

Thanks for the chance to win.

Bamasphynx said...

I love the sweet mango petite rose. What deautiful fabrics and I know just the pattern I would use for them in a quilt. Thanks for the give-a-way.

hollyvan@hotmail.com said...

I guess if I have to print I would go with either the peach dot with the flowers or the peach stripe!

Jan Barnett said...

Peach! And I just love stripes! Thanks!

AlisonJo said...

I love the China Blue Morning Sun fabric!

Debbie said...

I love the peach colors the best. The colors are all so soothing. Any quilt made out if these fabrics would be gorgeous!

Barbara said...

Love all the polka dots with roses.......if I can only pick one it would be china blue. This is a collection that would work with so many other fabrics in beautiful quilts and granddaughter dresses.

Marilyn Lessner said...

What a lovely and refreshing line of fabrics. I would love to make a quilt using the Lilac Ellie Ann collection. Been wanting to make something in the lilac,purple colors for ages. It would be so great to be a winner!

Elsa said...

I like all of Ellie Ann but really like Ellie Ann Tangelo!
Thanks for the giveaway ~ really generous!

Jennifer said...

Azalea twilight...the whole collection is beautiful. Thanks for the chance.

Kay said...

I really like the China Blue Floral. It is such a pretty color of blue.

LeAnne said...

I really like all of the Ellie Floral. It's just got so much going on with the background floral and the dots that I think it would be terrific in a quilt. The whole line is fabulous and exactly my style.

Dee said...

I love the smale paisley floral tone on tone prints - all of them. Yum

Anonymous said...

The lilac collection is absolutely stunning and will definitely be on my list. My favorite though is the China Blue Morning Sun. I would make a quilt out of that one fabric alone. patseidle(at)gmail dot com.

Betty B said...

My favorite is the Blue Petite Rose - love small prints for my scrappy quilts.

Sober Brat said...

I love the entire spectrum but my favorite is sentimental: a long-ago boyfriend called me 'Sweet Pea'. Brings back good memories!

Jeanne said...

It is really hard to pick a favorite but I do really love that mango color. Its different! My favorite is
Ellie Ann Tangelo Petite Rose Yardage
SKU# 1234-22

Melissa said...

Love these prints! The Ellie Ann collections are the cutest I have seen in a long time ��

Grandmasewnsew said...

I love them all but my favorite is Ellie Ann Tangelo Petite Rose Yardage. I just love the freshness of this line!

Lisa C said...

Thank you for the chance to win. My favorites are the lilac prints because my aunt, who passed in 2006, loved purple more than anyone on the planet. Her bathroom was purple, her bedroom was purple, and everyone who knew her knew she loved purple. Last Christmas there was line of Christmas fabric that had some purple in it (with gold). My aunt was pretty sparkly along with her purple. (Outside of Texas they would call it "gawdy"!) I bought some and my my aunt's daughter some Christmas coasters. They were a tearful hit. Enjoy your day.

sndy1 said...

My fav is the peach colorway. Beautiful and calming.

Diann said...

My favorite is the Pink Petite Rose fabric because it would be perfect to decorate a little girl's room. So sweet!

Tammy said...

My favorite is the ellie ann tangelo ellie floral. What gorgeous fabrics in this line. conn_and_vans_mom(at)yahoo(dot)com

Coffee Break Whatever said...

Those are just absolutely gorgous! As I was scrolling down reading, every one I'd say "Oh I love that!" so a favorite is hard, but it is between the Sweet Pea and the Lilac and if I have to choose one..since my fav color is blue...I'll go with the Lilac! I DVR all Quilt in a Day shows and watch them over and over! I love El!

Rita E in AZ said...

I like the Pink Petite Rose because it makes me think of summer

Cal said...

Love the Ellie Ann Tangelo Ellie Floral Yardage. It is a traditional large floral design but the saturated orange color is a wonderful modern twist I think. It would make wonderful pillowcases.

krisgray said...

I like the Mango on Dream Ellie Floral. I am such a sucker for roses and a pretty, peachy color is hard to find as I'm not a fan of orange.

Janey Chism said...

I love the EllieAnn China Blue floral print most, but what I'm loving about this collection is the combination of pink, tangerine and blue. Thanks for honoring Eleanor Burns. She started me on my "quilting path".

You really think it's possible to pick just one!? Well, OK. It's Ellie Ann China Blue Ellie Floral Yardage.
Pare it with white (& maybe a couple of the other prints in the collection)& it would make a wonderfully cool summer quilt.

My favorite is the Ellie Ann Tangelo Ellie Floral Yardage
SKU# 1227-22. When I saw the color and the rose I instantly thought of the orange roses at the 2005 Rose Bowl when the Longhorns won! Hook 'Em Horns! I could make a sweet little gameday dress.

Oh, wow! I would just love to win this bundle! So full of Spring, makes me antsy. They are all beautiful and colorful, but if I had to choose just one I think I would choose the sweet mango petite rose. My Nana loved peach roses so that's why I choose this one, it makes me remember all the good times I had with my Nana.

Love lilac Ellie , colors are so fresh

They are all such pretty fabrics! But, if I could only buy yardage in one of those fabrics, it would be Azalea Twilight. It has a lot of versatility being a tone on tone, yet still has some texture to it and it makes me happy just looking at it. A win-win-win.

My favorite is ellie ann china blue ellie floral yardage sku#1227-50. It looks like a beautiful flower garden during a warm summer rain. I can see myself standing in the garden enjoying the fresh sweet smell mixture of the fresh rain and the smell of the flowers. babscorbitt@gmail.com

What a difficult decision to make!
All the patterns are beautiful in each of the color ways.
My favorite is the pink garland. I love it's retro look and the large scale of the different designs on it.

It's hard to decide like all the fabrics in this line, but I think the China Blue Morning Sun is my favorite.
