Default What is your "go to" quilting book?

I have gotten so many great book referrals from the board that my Amazom wish list just keeps growing and growing, but what is the one book you return to time after time? My favorite is 24 hour quilts by Rita Weiss. It seems to save my bacon time every time I get myself into a quilting bind. Such as "Sure, I can get a quilt done for your husbands birthday " or " The baby is due when?" What book do find most helpful?

I really like Best-Loved Quilts. Yet, I enjoy looking through each and every book/magazine that I have.

i learned a lot from Egg Money Quilts by Eleanor Burns. she has a great style with her instructions.

I make quilts for the new babies in my Church and my go to books are by Ursula Reikes. I have 3 of her books.

Mine is "Your First Quilt Book...or it should be". It's the one I always grab when I forget something, and I have a huge bookcase full of quilt books, plus more that don't fit in.
