    Your quilt magazine recommendations?

    A friend has offered me a subscription to a quilting magazine and I'm not sure which to ask for. I'm a beginner so would like one that is rather general as I'm learning new techniques. What would you suggest?

    There are many, but one that I think has a good variety of articles/patterns is American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine-published by Better Homes and Gardens.

    That is my favorite machine too. I do get many of them but if I could only get one subscription it would be for American Patchwork & Quilting by Better Homes and Gardens.

    When I was very new, I liked Quick Quilts magazine, because the patterns were about my speed.

    I like Quilters Newsletter Magazine. It's not as heavy on patterns as some of the other magazines, but that's not what I'm looking for in a magazine. (Plenty of patterns in books, internet, and elsewhere.) I find something inspiring in every issue.

    I'm also with American Patchwork & Quilting for a beginner to check out....there are a lot of great quilt magazines out there. Go to either a bookstore, a grocery store with a good magazine section or a quilt store, etc. (or all of them) and check out the different quilting magazines and see which ones appeal to you.

    I would recommend Fon's and Porter's Love of Quilting. There are several quilt patterns in each magazine,of different skill levels. If instead of a magazine subscription,have you ever looked at Quilt in a Day books? They are step by step books, perfect for beginners. If you don't have the option of watching Quilt in a Day on your local PBS station, you can watch episodes on the Quilt in a Day website. Excellent resource for a beginner.

    It also depends on what type of quilting magazine you want. Do you want one that has only patterns, very few articles? Or do you want one with articles of interest to quilters? I like The Quilt Life because it has articles. But it doesn't have many patterns. That's OK with me. For patterns I like American Patchwork & Quilting, Quilt World and Quiltmaker.
