  5. Thanks so much for featuring my book in your giveaway! Excited that it is now released and am thrilled to see it here on your blog. :)

  6. Sherri Eley says:

    A quilter cannot have too many books or fabric. I would love to have them in my quilting library.

  7. Linda E in AZ says:

    I haven’t looked at any books recently, having just returned from a 5-week camping trip to the Pacific Northwest. However, several months ago I bought Don Linn’s Sophisticated Stitches book (from C&T) to help with my quest to improve my free motion machine quilting skills.

  8. I’ve been giving quilt-as-you-go books by Sharon Pederson a 2nd look. Finally figured out how to make needle position move over on my machine in straight stitch! It’s like a brand new machine :) Edge foot (“ditch”) & 1/4 seam foot are actually useful now!!

  9. Pam L says:

    All the books have some great ideas. I like the Stop Go Quilt Sew. I always look at signs especially the ones with the yellow and black striped v shaped ones for dead end and thought they would make a great quilt!

  10. paula preti says:

    I love the calendar. gives me inspiration all year long. Also the Modern Quilts book would be a good one.

  11. Ruth Quinn says:

    It seems hard to find patterns for men and boys. These 2 books look interesting, in this regards. I have recently looked at Sally Collins books on Precision Piecing. Always ways to improve our piecing.

    STOP, GO,QUILT, SEW With ideas for Boys,Sounds like something I could really use. I’d love to have something that that my grand son would be intersted in helping with ,he likes to do crafts and puts his nose in when his sister is quilting with me, wanting something to do.

  33. wordygirl says:

    Angela Walters’s book “Free Motion Quilting” is the one I’ve been poring over this week. So much to learn from such a nice person and talented quilter.

  34. Chris Peterson says:

    I just purchased Sharon Pedersen’s “Reversible Quilts” book. A friend made one at quilt camp and I just have to try the technique.

    Just purchased Friendship Strips and Scraps by Edyta Sitar and can’t decide which quilt to start on first – they are all great.

  41. K B Parnell says:

    I’ve been working on quilts from two books. First, Summer at the Lake Quilts, which provided me with patterns “Summer At Sawtooth Lake Quilt” (for a throw at our cabin) and “Star of the Picnic Table Topper” (for the 4th of July), and Midnight Quilts by Lerlene Nevaril, which provided “Bear’s Paw Beauty” (for a more contemporary use of vibrant colors). Great books! Keep them coming!!

  42. Nancy Danish says:

    I have a very large stash and Cozy Modern Quilts looks like a great way to use some of it up.

  43. Carol Vickers says:

    Some new babies among my circle of friends and family due to arrive in a few months so I’ve been looking for some neat patterns in my books, most recently, Quilting for Baby by Jeanne Stauffer and Sandra L. Hatch.

  44. Tanya Hockensmith says:

    Being overseas right now with my soldier-husband and family has made getting books and fabric hard without ordering online. But my most recent was the T*Shirt Quilts Made Easy book by Martha DeLeonardis as I am planning a a retirement quilt from my hubby’s old unit t-shirts and some of his uniform t-shirts from his various deployments. I think that would make a great gift for whenever he retires(he’s been in 24 years next month!). Any of the above books seem like great reads to me!

  45. PennyDog says:

    I recently reviewed Jelly Roll Dreams by Pam and Nicky Lintott. I loved it!

  46. donna says:

    Love books that help me to use up my many fabric leftovers.
