    I went to my Library to return some books and of course get some new ones. On the way out, I checked the free magazine bin. People bring in their magazines from home and you can take as many as you'd like. I brought home at least a dozen 'quiltmaker' magazines and a few BHG quilt magazines. I left many more there for the next person to get lucky too. By the way, when I am done with them, I will return them for someone else to pick up!.

    When you find that pattern that makes you want to keep the magazine, scan it instead and return the magazine uncut.
