    Quilter's Newsletter - it's the only one I've subscribed to, and have not been disappointed in any edition in more than 15 years :)

    That's like trying to pick my favorite quilt pattern or quilt book! Nearly impossible! It seems that Quilters Newsletter has a lot of good articles (but most of the quilts are too "artsy" for my taste.) I like Fons and Porter a lot too. But I agree, I used to LOVE Traditional Quilting and Quiltworks and MIniture quilts, but they all don't exist anymore. :(

    I don't subscribe to any right now. I found myself receiving magazines loaded with patterns and making none of them. I like to read some of the articles. The only one I read cover to cover was Quilter's Home and is not worth it anymore. I read that Mark Lipinski is coming out with another magazine soon.

    OMG. I have so many. I subscribe to Quilter's home, Fons and Porter, Mccalls, Quiltmaker, and a few others. I love to read Quilter's HOme when Mark Lipinski did the editing. Now he moved on to Fabric Trends. The Quilter's home is still trying to keep his style alive. I love to read more about what is going on and not just get patterns. Of course I read all of my magazines covre to cover and some several times over. Love my quilting magazines.

    I totally agree. I used to love Quilter's Newsletter and got it for at least 2 decades but it's changed too much for me. Bummer, I used to get excited every time an issue arrived :(
    I don't subscribe to any right now. There's so much online I honestly don't miss them.

    I am eliminating most of my subscriptions. To much trouble to go thru to find patterns.
    I will keep Fons and Porter, at least you can open the back page and see all the quilts in the issue.
    McCalls will keep also.

    This explains why he isn't doing Quilter's Home any longer. I probably won't renew it. He has a special way with words! I always got a big laugh from his writing. Our prayers are with him and his donor.
    Love McCalls, guess this would be it if I could only get one. I am letting my subscriptions expire on most of the others.

    OK I need to keep track of what everyone said so I can make a decision. My hubby subscribes for the magazines he wants so I decided that I should be able to subscribe to the magazine of my choice. i just may have to subscribe to more than one. LOL

    I buy Quilting and Patchwork uk, the ones I really like are the Australians Stitchery Homespun ect they are expensive but worth it for all the ideas. If I see them I always buy one.Flair is quite good and Designs in Embroidery. There are so many I have collected quite a few different ones to keep me going but its the prices!

    This is the ONLY one I read now. I have purchased books (hard and soft cover) for patterns. Why buy when we now have all these quilting friends that are so helpful, informative, and supportive to each of us. Nope no more space needed for books, just space in my heart and mind for each of you. Thanks
