    Don't you just love her? Have you seen her on "Simply Quilts"? She is a stitch. I have her books too.

    Question: is the Complete Guide to Quilting the same as Quilter's Complete Guide?

    I am making the backing using pieced letters and I learned how to make all the letters in that book. How can you go wrong with a book that shows you how to make 501 quilt blocks!
    That is also my favorite. I have used it for years. Everytime I look through it I see something different.

    This is one I use frequently. Then I have a "quilt book that isn't very good but it was my Mom's and I would not ever get rid of this one. It is sorta like my Mom's cookbook.

    Here are some recent links from this board. There are many more if you type "favorite quilting book" into the search blank. Fun to read.

    I have several books, but don't know if any would be my favorite. I do get books from the local library & love so many of them. I get alot of ideas from them & the best thin is, I don't have to pay a cent for them.

    "All About Machine Arts" - Decorative Techniques from A to Z from Sew News, Creative Machine Embroidery and C&T Publishing. It is the "BOMB"! Lessons for Beading, boobinwork couching, crazy quilt stitching, enbroidery, eyelets, free-motion quilting, pintucks, presser feet, quilting, ribbonwork, satin stitching, trapunto, tucks and lots more. I just love it and use it all the time as a reference.

    Also enjoy anything by Harriet Hargrave; she's an awsome instructor.

    Oh my. What a decision. First would be my 501 blocks book and then I bought more similar to it. I would think any of my wondrful books is a treasure. And read each from cover to cover so you know what's in each book. I keep all my magazines in binder in date order and have a list at the front of special articles and such. I can find a book and date when someone needs it. AndI can sit and read any time I need some time out for myself. Fun to see what everyone else's replies are.

    UHMMM -- that's a hard one to decide on a favourite book. One I use a lot is "Quilting from start to finish" by Katherine Guerrier. I also really like a brilliant magazine by Quiltmaker called 100 Blocks. Volumes one and two are published and number three is due out end of April. They are very good.
    I have a few Debbie Mumm and Eleanor Burns books and I love Brenda Papadakis, Dear Jane and Dear Hannah. Also Jennifer Chiaverini Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. Oh gosh this list is getting rather long - better stop !!

    I could never narrow it down to one, but I love all my scrap quilt books (and I have many!) I find myself looking through them over and over and marking lots of pages. Also, the Joy of Quilting has a bunch of post-it-notes marking quilts I like. Ohh, when will I ever find enough time to make all of the quilts I have marked?????
