    American Quilter, Quilter's Newsletter, American Patching & Quitwork, Modern Quilts Unlimited. The last one is very new and I am trying it for a year. I have subscribed to different quilt magazines over the years. I probably will drop one or two when the subscriptions expire since there can be information overload, and I have enough ideas as it is!

    I asked DH for 3 magazine subscriptions for Christmas: American Patchwork, McCall's and Quilters World.

    I get Quilter's World and McCall's Quick Quilts. I used to get a couple of others, but didn't like the style they had.

    I used to have a LOT of subscriptions but let them expire one by one. Now I'm down to Quiltmaker (because of Bonnie Hunter's column), American Quilter with membership in AQS, and Quilt (actually that one may have run out).

    I do look through each quilt magazine as I see one on the news stand: my rule is buy it ONLY if it has at least three quilts I'd like to make. *LOL* That doesn't happen very often any more!

    The only magazine I grab without looking is the one with the Shop Hops: Quilt Sampler. I love that magazine!

    If I can get a really good deal on BH&G's American Patchwork & Quilting, I'd re-subscribe.

    I used to get them all, but most of the time there was nothing in them that peaked my interest. Now I look thru them w hen Im shopping and if I see something, then I buy it.

    There seems to be a trend here...I also used to subscribe to several: American Patchwork & Quilting, Fons & Porter Love of Quilting, and McCalls. I'm down to McCalls now, and will not renew it.

    I think maybe I've outgrown them. I've worked at a LQS for 5 years now, and tend to buy patterns and books instead. Or make up my own design...

    I used to get Fons and Porter, McCalls Quilting, and McCalls Quick Quilts. I have let them all lapse. There was just nothing good enough to pay the high prices they demand. There seemed to be more ads and less patterns and information in them all. I spend my money on quilt books and patterns now. I already have more on my bucket list than I can make in a lifetime anyway.

    I currently am subscribed to about 6. Two of them are digital subscriptions and it is nice to have these since I save them as PDF's on my iPad2. I can then just take my iPad along and will have a dozen mags right in my hand. Plus, it doesn't take up shelf space. I LOVE it when a new mag arrives in the mail but am going to start letting them go. Need to start working from my 'magazine stash' now instead of getting new ones.
