    I'm looking for a new quilt book that will inspire/motivate me to do something different. Any reviews on a new one? The last one I bought was
    Rotary Cutting Revolution and I have about worn it out using all the patterns in the book several times.

    I have all of E Burns books. I have the Radiant Star kit ready to sew. I need a block of time to start and finish without interruptions so it's on hold until I go on a weekend quilt retreat.

    I just ordered Tradition with a Twist by Blanche Young, and an Eleanor Burns DVD. I order books out of the library first and after I read them, if I really like them, then I will order them. I got so tired of ordering books that looked and sounded great but then when I got them they weren't as good as I expected.

    I found a Pam Bono book at Big Lots for $3.00 It is Rectrangles (sic) New Quick Piecing tricks. I haven't started any yet. The one I want to do calls for 16 (!!) different fabrics. It will take me awhile to coordinate all those.

    Pam Bono has some of the best piecing patterns. She has a new website and offers an online membership that is a darn good deal. http://www.pambonodesigns.com/

    I just ordered A Fine Line by Melody Crust but it is not a pattern book it is a book on quilting techniques and inspiration. I love it. I got it on Ghost Rider's recommendation from another thread.

    For patterns some of my favorite "go to" books are 101 Fabulous Rotary Cut Quilts by Judy Hopkins and NAncy Martin. I also like the book Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!!

    Back in November I also got a bunch of books for my birthday. 2 of them that have quite a few patterns I want to try are Stellar Quilts by Judy Martin and Crazy for Scraps by Sally Schnieder. The scrap one has 19 patterns but only about half caught my eye. The Stellar quilts book has some gorgeous quilts but the patterns are very challenging.

    Lots of lovely patterns if you like reproductions.

    I just got a couple of the 'Nickel Quilts' books by Pat Speth. Ever get obsessed with something? I've been getting men's shirts at thrift stores & cutting them into 5" charms. I have enough to do several quilts, but can't seem to stop. Need a 12 step program. Here in MI there seems to be lots of gorgeous 100% cotton Aloha shirts. Some look like batik. I can just picture it, you go on an exotic vacation, get caught up in the atmosphere, buy a couple of tropical shirts, get back to MI and then, hmmm, don't seem to go with the snow!

    I got the Not your grandmother's tumbling blocks book. I collect quilting books more than I collect fabric. I actually get nervous when fabric starts to pile up b/c it is so hard to keep organized. Books stay on a shelf so nicely...

    I bought "A New Light on Storm at Sea Quilts" by Wendy Matheson, along with the rulers. I am still determined to make one of these quilts!
