I just LOVE the BH&G "Quilts and More magazine". There was the CUTEST quilted carrot shaped Table Runner this month. It always has patterns & color choices that intrest me. I wish it was monthly...

I also love almost ANY Denyse Schmidt Quilt. Beautiful!

What about you?

I like Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting. I can usually find several patterns I want to try in each issue. I just wish it was a liitle thicker like some of the other quilting magazines.
I also like McCall's quilting. :up:

I like the free motion ideas provided with their quilts. Also, Quilters World is not bad either. Fons and Porter is also on my list of favourites too.

It really depends on that month's patterns. It could be any one of them. I used to get quite a few of them, but I found that I couldn't keep up with the patterns, so I finally gave up all the subscriptions. Dh still buys some for me occasionally, but I get them only when I see an irresistible pattern.

I feel like I subscribe to all of them..I'm sure there are some I've missed but don't really have a favorite...depends on what's in them each month as to which one I'm partial to.

I like the free motion ideas provided with their quilts.

I used to like Quiltmaker, Judy, but found that too many of their patterns are carried over in parts from one issue to the next and unless one subscribes one can miss a part. I have found patterns I liked and bought the magazine month after month only to find the pattern I was collecting was the only thing I wanted in the magazine. Did you know that their internet site has all those free motion patterns that you can down load? I have a whole binder of ones that I like. After reading your message earlier today I did pick up a copy when out shopping (looking for Ottobre, which I didn't find and had to order) and did see more than one thing I like in this months Quiltmaker.
I can't find Quiltmaker internet address right now but it would be easy via Google.

I also like Quilter's World and have just subscribed to it. I subscribe to Quilter's Newletter and pick up others as I see them - in fact I have far more than I will ever use. I occasionally buy Fons and Potter. I can never remember the one I like from France until I see it on the newstands.
Today I also picked up New Zealand Quilter and it is wonderful!! I subcribe to Quilting Arts and regularly buy Belle Armoire as both are so much fun to read/look at and dream of making something from there! :cool:
Do you wonder why I constantly have to rebudget and don't things finished? :nervous:

I like to go to McCall's Quilting online to check out each new issue to find out if there is anything in them I might want in them before I think about buying. Most of the quilting magazines are wonderful that way. From McCall's site, you can get to Quick Quilts and Quiltmaker. They also have lots of quilt patterns to print out along with quilting designs.

McCalls is and Quiltmaker is

I hope that helps you.

I subscribe to Quilter's World and Fon's and Porter's Love of Quilting. I pick up others occasionally at the book store.
