    I just received '501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks' by Judy Hopkins (not to be
    confused with 501 Quilt Blocks by Better Homes and Gardens - ask how I
    know LOL) and 'Sew One and You're Done' by Evelyn Sloppy. Both highly
    recommended.
    The first one has all the blocks you can imagine in every size you need.
    I know there's quilterscache but this book has different blocks and easy
    to browse. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. ;-)
    The 'Sew One and You're Done' - they have some nice blocks and as the
    title suggests you make one block and you have a quilt. The size of the
    block varies from 45" to 56". Some look complicated but are quite easy.
    I think I'm really going to enjoy both books as they both have lots of stars
    which I am into right now. If you don't have these books, check them out
    at your library if you can. I think they are worth it.

    How about you? Any new books? Maybe we can keep this thread going to
    add our newly acquired books.

    I love this book, it combines three books in one.

    EasyPeezy, those are both excellent books. I've had them in my collection for a year and enjoy browsing thru them all the time. I also highly recommend them.
    I haven't bought any new books lately with money being tight. Thankfully there's plenty of free patterns for me to choose from.

    I just bought Judy Martin's new book on Log Cabins b/c I'm making 3 for my boys and want them to all look different.
    I also bought Barbara Brackman's book on antique fabric b/c the 3 Log Cabins are being made with all antique cottons.
    I love Barbara B's quilt history books. Fascinating reading!! :D

    I recently picked up a couple of Judy Martin's books.
    Log cabins, Piece and Play, Cookies and Quilts. I would like to add Stellar quilts to the collection soon too

    Our county library has their book sale this Saturday. DD and I went yesterday and helped set up for several hours. When all was said and done, we helpers got first choice of the books to buy. I found three quilt books:

    More Lap Quilting by Georgia Bonesteel-$2.00

    Best-Selling Bazaar Patchwork from Oxmoor House- $2.00

    and my favorite; Better Homes & Gardens 101 full-size Quilt Blocks and Borders (with the templates)-$2.00

    I'm a happy camper. :lol:

    Recently I bought 2 books on color analysis, and a small portable color wheel. I am going to start teaching quilting, and I haven't taken a color class, so am learning it this way.

    Today I bought Stack-n-Whackipedia by Bethany S. Reynolds.
    Only looked at it briefly but I had to come on here to see what was going on! LOL
