I'm in a "top-ten" (or five or three or one...) mood these days.
Today I'd like to hear what your top three favorite quilting books are. And if you can't keep it to three, don't let the limit stop you! ;-) The point here is to compile a list of favorites.
1. Singer's _Quilted Projects & Garments_. (http://alturl.com/2hydx) This was a great book for me as a beginner and I have made the Shadowed Square Lap Quilt MANY times in a variety of fabrics. The book teaches basics, offers a variety of squares-- has a sampler quilt-- and uses lovely fabrics.
2. Jane Hall & Dixie Haywood, _Firm Foundations_. (http://alturl.com/of2ew). This is the book that introduced me (unsuccessfully) to paper-piecing (or what they call foundation piecing). I love the variety of blocks, and the collection of quilt samples is inspiring.
3. Debbie Caffrey, _Another Can of Worms_. (http://alturl.com/krmyz). Great technique, great instruction, great fabric and examples. Variety.
Honorable mention goes to Rebecca Wat, _Fantastic Fabric Folding_ (http://alturl.com/ur42u), from which I've made no quilt, though I have made a few of the sample pieces. It's inspirational.
