    I'm am thinking about trying out a quilt magizine...

    Which ones does everyone prefer? and why

    Cost is a factor, not so much the $ factor but the value of that $. I consdier my self a beginner/itermed quilter. I prefer lap/table runners and crafty stuff.

    I like Fons and Porter, they have projects for all levels.
    Try a couple from the library, or just buy a couple and see which ones you like best.

    It just depends on you, really. I like Quilter's Newletter best because it has more articles and artsy type stuff. But if you want projects, Quiltmaker or Fons and Porter might be better (I personally am not a fan of Fons and Porter - too many projects that depend entirely on one line of fabric). Quiltmaker has some really cute projects sometimes.

    I would go somewhere that has a large selection of magazines and browse through them, to see what magazine seems to have the features YOU would like. You might like McCall's. They seem to have a variety of small projects. I used to have a subscription but let it drop because I wasn't really making anything out of them, but like I said it's all a matter of personal taste.

    unforunately , I live ina small town and while we get a few magazines on the rack.. they tend to be diffrernt ones each month.( go figure?!)I do not expect to find EVERYTHING I want to do in each months magazine. Just trying to think out side the box. Magazines now days seem to have more ads than projects or articles.

    You might try your library. Sit down with a few and see what you like. I don't subscribe to any anymore. The ones I was getting seemed to be more about advertising and less about quilts. I look for things online more than anything elses

    You would like Quick Quilts or American Patchwork and Quilting.

    Visit here:http://www.mccallsquilting.com/index.html

    and here:http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/magazines/index.html

    Try a google search for quilt magazines and look at the different ones at their websites. It will give you a good idea of the magazine content.

    "The Quilter" has 16 to 18 projects in every issue.

    I get several magazines, but get more out of the American Patchwork and Quilting I think.
