    This one is my favorite! Everything is at the tip of your finger. QB is like a heaven for quilters. Think about it - there is everything here.

    My favorite is a blog. She also has a store to go along with it. It's www.ihaveanotion.blogspot.com and her store is www.ihaveanotion.com. Both are great!! I read her blog every day. She travels to many quilting businesses and sneaks around inside and investigates and takes pictures of upcoming fabrics and she's delightfully witty.

    One that has not been mentioned that I really like is www.quiltinaday.com I love watching her free videos because she generally gives all the information you need to make a block. Another you might include is www.craftsy.com Some in your guild might find the online classes available there helpful and occaisionally there is a small class for free.

    Thumbs up for QB!
    I realised that after hanging around here, quilting books don't seem that attractive to me anymore. Why? Because I see much more pretty quilts here, all free of charge!

    All fabric manufacturers have websites that are chock full of ideas and free patterns. Also, another great site for all sorts of free patterns and ideas is: www.favequilts.com. You will be amazed at what they have. They send me 3 or 4 emails each week with dozens of quilt patterns, tutorials, ideas, etc. I also like fabshophop.com. Most of the shops on that site also offer free patterns, and you will see the latest in notions, new rulers, new ideas, etc. The also have free Block of the Month patterns every 2 or 3 months, several of which we have used in a quilting group I co-host. In addition you can register for free prizes. I have won 3 times since starting here in November!

    My favorites are The Missouri Star Quilt Co., Leah Day and the quilter's cache. If you can't find it on one of these, it's probably not to be found!

    Missouri Star and Quiltville mentioned above, in addition to this site, are super. Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville gives lots of free patterns. Missouri Star has terrific You Tube tutorials. These are the "best of the best."

    This isn't a quilting website per se but I like Pinterest. I'm following quite a few quilters and sewists and can easily pin inspiration, ideas, tutorials etc and categorize them to diff boards. Also I pin my own completed projects.

    I'm looking for a store that sells unique quilting "stuff" to use as gifts. Would this be that type of store?
