    I got Modern Basics by Amy Ellis at www.amyscreativeside.com. My stepson wants me to make him a quilt, and he has pretty funky, modern tastes. I think he'll love the quilt on the cover. It's adorable, modern and fresh.

    I have 130 Mini Quilt Blocks by S. Briscoe from the library right now, and I'd love to find it to buy. It has great ideas for quick piecing some unusual blocks.

    the last quilt book I bought was"10 minute blocks" I saw a demo by Suzanne McNeill on "you tube" and made a sample one. I have more ideas in the works as you can do this with any size blocks!

    I also get quilt books through the library to see if I really want to buy the book. Our library will do "inter library loan" so they can request the book from any place in the U.S.

    I have to agree with those who mention Judy Martin. I have her entire library . Her Log Cabin books are impressive and there's always somethign for every skill level.

    Just bought "Stitch and Split Applique" by Crow and Segna. Some clever and different projects which are appealing. Also love Edyta Sitar's books.

    My last one was from Tuesday Mornings - 'Quilts from Lavendar Hill Farm' by Darlene Zimmerman for $6.99. There are some beauties in there.

    That is the last one I bought also. There are 3 quilts in it that I have already sorted through my stash and gotten the fabric ready to cut!

    Just ordered "Bargello with a Twist" Haven't tackled a bargello yet, thought I'd give it a try. I have many Elea nor Burns books and have made a good many of her quilts. Easy to follow instructions . Eleanor has made quilting easy for me.

    Last November I bought Bonnie K. Hunter's book LEADEERS & ENDERs after attending one of her lectures. Bonnie is the queen of SCRAPPY QUILTS. She so inspired me that i re-organized my stash and have completed 3 quilt tops. I just finished hand quilting the first one and now on to the rest. Her philososphy and pattern ideas are awesome. Take a look at her blog at Quiltville. com. Honestly I am not a relative just a great fan of hers

    Though I have bought lots of books over the years, I go back to a couple of goodies to get new inspiration time and time again.
    Try "Calico and Beyond: The Use of Patterned Fabric in Quilts"
    by Roberta Horton . The focus is on using more challenging fabric types and colors. It really pushed me beyond straight traditional quilts (which I love and feel deeply connected to) without leaving traditional blocks behind. The book also introduces exercises for Asian and African-American style quilts.
    If I had to only keep a dozen books this would be in my top 3!
