I don't have any quilting books yet, so I don't have a favorite. I guess you could say PINTEREST is my favorite book, since I spend a lot of time looking at quilts and articles on that.

Pinterest has brought me to many blogs that I'd like to follow...but I have no idea how!!

vwlady said...

My favorite quilt book is Tradition With A Twist by Blanche Young & Darlene Young Stone

Jeanne in Ohio said...

Cute fabric! My favorite book is Leaders and Enders by Bonnie Hunter. I'm a book collector and hers speak to me because of the modern way she adapts traditional patterns. I've admired her for years and have also enjoyed several of her free patterns.

My favorite quilting book- that is very hard but I do return to a few for inspiration- Collaborative quilting by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston. It is such a terrific book of color- I also love the Gee Bend quilters and Paula nadelstern kaleidoscope quilts and Ricky Tims works. The list does go on and on. Thanks for participating in the blog hop.

lynaeve said...

Um...Honestly I do not have any quilting books. I would love to get some, but I normally would rather purchase fabric. We have an extremely low budget for crafty stuff. That 90 minute quilts book looks like one I would buy if I had extra money.

Margaret said...

Right now Quilty Fun by Lori Holt is the book I keep pouring over. I keep Angela Walters free motion quilting by my side to.I am learning to FMQ and it is just a good book to try patterns out.

My favorite quilt book is Collaborative Quilts. I love the sections on color, and I love the idea of first constructing "building blocks" and then using them to lay out and make an original quilt.
