    Use the library for now, so you can get more fabric, you will pick books up as you go along. I started out with 1 book, now I have a libary myself!

    Your First Quilt Book...or it should be by Carol Doak
    Quilter's Complete Guide by Fons & Porter
    Quilts, Quilts, Quilts by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes
    I used all 3 and they are great!
    When you search the title on Amazon...they offer a link to used ones at good prices.

    I recently got the Better Homes and Gardens Complete Guide to Quilting. It is a hardback with rings in side, lays flat, lots of pictures and excellent written information. It is laid out in a very logical and orderly manner.

    I also have the Fons and Porter book.

    Thanks for getting back to me. If you could only have ONE of them, which would you recommend?
