    I love McCall's Quilting. They have a good variety of patterns and the directions are excellent.

    My personal favorite for ideas is "Quilt". For entertaining reading and info, "Quilter's Home".

    I used to subscribe to six or seven. I didn't renew any so am down to three. I'm just in the mood now to hunt them down on the newsstand, just because, then we I get out of that mood I'll start subscribing again to just my favorites and hunt the rest.

    My favorite is whatever one I can get my hands on here.
    The "bookstore" and I put it in quotes because to me, it's not really a book store. Yes, they sell books, but mainly have ones that are a few years old and it takes alot of time to get a new one ordered from them.
    The Navy Exchange here does sell quilt magazines, but only 3 of them and they only get 5 copies of each. UGH!

    I like Fons and Porters magazine for patterns and such but for a great read I get Quilters Home. It is so fun to read.

    I have subscribed, at one time or another, to Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting, Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, and American Patchwork and Quilting. I have also picked up and read other quilting magazines from time to time, including some from Australia. Each magazine seems to have it's strengths and weaknesses. Buy some on the newsstand that appeal to you and read them. Then decide which one has the quilts and articles that interest you the most. A one year subscription is usually about the same price as purchasing a magazine 3 or 4 times at the store. If you find yourself buying the same quilt magazine over and over again, you should subscribe!!

    I do like McCalls Quilting but I have subscribed to American Patchwork and Quilting for years. I really enjoy it, although it might be time to branch out!
