    What are your favorite quilt magazine subscriptions and why?

    I want to subscribe to them all and need help narrowing down my choices. I don't care for art quilting or any other crafting. I like articles on "how to" and love different patterns. Which ones do you prefer?

    I like almost any and all quilting magazines. However, I only subscribe to Quilters World this year.....
    I have a tendency to change from year to year. Sometimes, depending on finances, I don't subscribe to any.


    how come my signature doesn't show anymore?????
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    I think my favorite is The Quilter, it seems to have more my style quilts and I enjoy the articles they have.
    I also like quick quilts and quilt but I have cut down my subscriptions and only have quilter and quick quilts.I got quick
    quilts because I got a 9.98 price for a year.

    Have been a fan and subscriber to Quilters Newsletter Magazine for more than 15 years. Have had others now and again, but QNM is my fav!

    I like them all..but have found over the past couple of years that there really isn't anything NEW in them. Its just one big book of advertising for $7-15 a pop. I find the new stuff by searching blogs and this board. Every now & then I get one just to have it..but would rather spend my funds on thread & fabric. =)

    I like Fons and Porter and Quilters World. I subscribe to the digital media because I am trying to save trees and rid myself of clutter. I don't like nor do I think I will ever make every quilt I see in a magazine. With the digital subscription, you can save a pattern or page as a pdf on a thumb drive, and when you are ready to make the quilt you have it filed away. It takes getting used to, but I love it! I also like McCall's quilting magazines.

    My favorite is the one that arrives in the mail on any given day. I subscribe to several and it is hard to choose just one.

    I'm a Quiltmaker girl myself, but give myself permission to get single issues I like of other magazines. That is what I usually do when I'm going out of town..Then I have something to read while my husband is driving!
