    I've made more projects out of Quilter's World than any other magazine.

    Hi Karen, so glad you and your DH are doing so well. I do want to thank you for all the links you post for all of us. I use them all the time.
    Yes I get the Quilters World magazine online. I have always loved this magazine and am so glad I can now get it online. The thing I really like about the online magazine is that you can get up to 2 years in back issues and I sure have missed a lot.
    I have downloaded several projects that I have lined up to make.

    I have the digital subscription and have access to the last two years issues. I wish all the quilting magazines would have the digital option.

    I love My Quilting World I love how I can go back to 2006 to get all of the back issues. I am still getting used to the new Editor but time will tell. I actually use it more than any other magazine. It gives a newbie the courage to be creative and yet still have room to grow!

    I get it too. I wasn't going to renew this year but I did. I have been finding I get more info on line than in the magazine. I haven't been too thrilled with their customer service this year and have been thinking about not renewing when the time comes.

    I am drastically cutting back on my quiltig magazine subscriptions. Most of them are loaded with advertising and lots less real quilting patterns and information. The subscription prices are extremely high and I would think with all the ads that they could drop it quite a bit and still make money. When I compare the older magazines I find that they had a lot more quilting "meat" than the new ones.

    Just a suggestion to those with the digital subscription. I have a running word doc with the date of the magazine and then a list of all of my favorite patterns. This way if I need a quilt pattern I can quickly look it up and find what I am looking for. Just an fyi!!

    Fons and Porter has digital now. Any pattern that is theirs has video embedded so you can watch the pattern being made by them. Pretty neat. Also any ad product that has a how to video you can watch. Very interactive digital magazine. Here is a link, it's hard to find. It's not listed anywhere.

    My first quilt I made came from that magazine it was called "Rhapsody in Blue" But I changed the colors around to make it my own. It is usually my avatar on here.......
