    One branch of our county library system has lots of quilting books. I go there and thumb thru until I find something I like and think I can do with my limited experience.
    Good luck!

    I am from Omaha, NE and I need to visit Quilted Moose. A new quilt shop opened "More Sew For You". It is at Countryside Village off of Pacific, across from Westside High School.

    Two weeks ago I purchased "Liberated Quiltmaking II" by Gwen Marston.....fantastic book!! I've made quilts from so many purchased patterns and books and now it's time for me to get out of my comfort zone and come up with my own design. This book fits this need. I will post a picture with whatever I come up with. This is a great topic.

    Yesterday I purchased a landscape quilt book for beginners at one of our local quilt stores.....it was half price. Now I have to find a shop or someone to help teach me how to do them. I think the book will help a lot. However, I do much better with the visual hands on approach.

    Kaffe Fassett's "Passionate Quilting". I've been away from quilting publications for years and his work was new to me. I love his manipulation of patterned fabrics such as the shirting stripes.

    Normally when you purchase a new quilt book, you will be lucky to find a couple of patterns that you really love. I love everything in this book, titled "Scrap-Basket Sensations" by Kim Brackett. I paid full price of $24.99, but am starting to see it everywhere, even Joann's.

    I bought "3 Times the Charm" by Me and My Sistr Designs and published by Leisure Arts. It's a thin book with 7 quilt patterns made for charm packs. They are small quilts but can be adapted for larger quilt center. I like charms packs.

    I just bought Mindful Meandering by Laura Lee Fritz. It's full of FMQ designs that she allows anyone to use just for buying the book. Her designs are really helping me.

    I Just purchased "Scrap Quilts Go country" By Deanne Eisenman
    and another book called "2 piece patchwork" By Sandy Petsche. Both are great scrap users. There is a quilt I want to try and do that is called "Blooming Stars" from the scrap quilts go country book. I actually love this one more because it also has applique in with the scrappy patterns.
