Use the library for now, so you can get more fabric, you will pick books up as you go along. I started out with 1 book, now I have a libary myself!

Your First Quilt Book...or it should be by Carol Doak
Quilter's Complete Guide by Fons & Porter
Quilts, Quilts, Quilts by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes
I used all 3 and they are great!
When you search the title on Amazon...they offer a link to used ones at good prices.

I recently got the Better Homes and Gardens Complete Guide to Quilting. It is a hardback with rings in side, lays flat, lots of pictures and excellent written information. It is laid out in a very logical and orderly manner.

I also have the Fons and Porter book.

Thanks for getting back to me. If you could only have ONE of them, which would you recommend?

I taught a basic quilting class to a small group at church a few years ago....we used Pat Sloan's I can't believe I'm quilting. http://patsloan.biz/icantbelieveimquilting.aspx and there is now a follow up book to it.
