    My favorite is "A Slice of Christmas" by Piece O' Cake. I would love to have a hard copy; mine is a digital download.

    I am a sucker for anything by Terry Atkinson. Her patterns are spot on, she gives multiple sizes and they always LOOK hard but are easy piecing!

    It's funny I have favorites in which the photography makes me warm and fuzzy, how I'd like to make all those quilts and then I have the ones that have helped me with my quilting like: "Eleanor Burns Log Cabin Quilts" and "Quilting for Dumbies". :0)

    My favorites Material Obsession and Material Obsession 2. I have made several quilts from them. The progress from easy to difficult. Otherwise, most of my inspiration comes from the QB.

    I too enjoy and read all my quilt books several times a year, regardless of if I've made something from them.
    I do love the Quiltmaker's Gift
    http://www.quiltmakersgift.com/about/index.htm
    and now there are patterns for all the quilts available too. Don't have those so no opinion there.

    In Love with Quilts cuz I sold the folk quilt w schoolhouse blocks to the editor when I was an antique dealer.
    The Romance of the Patchwork Quilt, copyright date 1935 by Carrie A. Hall and Rose G. Kretsinger. It relates history of quilting, many, many black and white images of quilt blocks. It is in hardback. More recently, my Ddil works at Leisure Arts and I have multitudes of books from gifts.
