    Cathe, I too, like the AMERICAN PATCHWORK & QUILTING. They have easier patterns for me than some of the others I have subscribed to. Nancy

    Cathe:
    Last summer I went into our local Goodwill Store/St. Vincent de Paul/Salvation Army thrift stores looking for fruit jars for canning. I happened to go through the book section and found the Mother Lode of quilting books and magazines (and cookbooks!) that I spent about an hour perusing. I have decided these places are a great place to get magazines and books and they sell for about a quarter each to $ 1.99. You may be able to find some magazines at these stores and get a preview of what each magazine has to decide which you would want to subscribe to. A good way to TRY BEFORE YOU BUY. I personally get Fons and Porter and Quiltmaker and love both of them and have ACTUALLY made things out of each of the magazines I've gotten.

    If you are looking for something different, try Mark Lipinski's Quilters Home.

    Fabric Trends is also interesting. They feature different fabric lines and include a quilt pattern designed for each fabric line featured.

    I also like McCalls and Fons & Porter.

    Loretta:
    I sure am interested in the history of the quilt blocks but have become somewhat disillusioned as I read alot about the quilt blocks of old being very instramental in directing slaves to Canada by the pattern, direction of the geese in a quilt, or where the arrows were pointing but have read recently that the black hisorians have no knowledge of such practices by the white folks who wanted to aid the blacks in getting out of the area where they were being enslaved. One article I read was in a Fons & Porter magazine (I think) kinda debunked the old "legends." ??????

    I think there are some threads here about that issue, Feathers - there WERE no such legends until recently when a couple quilt books were published, making that false claim (that quilts were used in the abolitionist movement).

    There are a lot of good websites about quilt history, Loretta. Some are more accurate than others, of course. :roll:

    I used to get a little crochet magazine that had pictures of all the projects on the back cover.
    If quilting mags would do this, they would have my business.
    I canceled most of my quilt mags because it is just to much to find a pattern in dozens of mags.
    I even asked Fons and Porter to put pics on the back cover but never got an answer. They would rather have the advertizing money for the back cover.
