    I would like to subscribe to a quilting magazine.

    I just found out there are six of them in the US.

    If you were to subscribe to just one quilting magazine, which one would you choose?

    and why?

    thanks

    I have a ton of magazines...I like the ones that have quilts that I can actually make...I love the Better Homes and garden Quilting magazine, and The Quilter and McCall's quiting. Fons & Porter is ok...but more for advance quilters in my opinion but fun to look at. The Quilter Newsletter is ok...nothing I would get overly excited about...but if you like doing harder, art quilts there are a lot of ideas....I do love looking at all of them though.

    I like Quilting Arts. I don't subscribe because it is expensive but I should because I almost always end up buying one.

    What you want out of a magazine and what somebody else wants out of a magazine are likely to be two different things. I want more current trends and info so I subscribe to Quilter's Newsletter and Fabric Trends. If I wanted more patterns I'd go with The Quilter. That magazine has 16 to 18 great patterns every month.

    If they are all sealed in plastic at your stores, try your library and see if they have any that appeal to you. Most mags specialize in a "type" of quilt :D:D:D

    I believe Quilt Sampler only comes out twice a year...Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. It is published by Better Homes & Gardens.

    I love "The Quilter" have made more quilts from it than any other magazine. I just oredered "Quilt" because they were offering 6 issues for $9.96! Best price for a quilt mag. that I have seen for a long time. Hoping it is a good one.

    I have taken the same quilt magazine for years, and I haven't found one yet as good as the "Quilt" magazine. I love the down to earth patterns, and easy directions. It costs $10 a yr. Very worth it.

    I recommend either American Patchwork & Quilting, McCalls Quilting, or Quiltmaker.

    Quilter's Home. It has great articles more than patterns, but I don't really need patterns at this point.

    These are my favorites also. I especially like the quilting diagrams in Quiltmaker.

    Quilter's Home Magazine.
    I like it because it has stuff to read about not just a ton of patterns. There are 3 patterns each issue but I really enjoy the articles about the quilters, designers, etc.... it's a "fun" magazine IMO.

    "Quilt" has been my favorite for years. I like scrappy, and they usually have at least one pattern in each issue. They are more traditional, not so artsy.

    Did they always charge for shipping? I don't remember that. The issues that feature different patterns, and only PART of the pattern is featured, and you will have to buy 3 or 4 issues to get the entire patter - THAT is what I stay away from!.
