    Re: Quilting Magazines

    I love Gen Q and I also like the Machine Embroidery magazine--not necessarily quilty, but I get lots of great inspiration there.

    Re: Quilting Magazines

    I have to subscribe since our American bookstore here is down to one quilt magazine now. I really like McCalls but last year I had to fight to get all my issues. I subscribed to block and I'm going to subscribe to quilters newsletter I think it's called I've always liked the projects in that one! I'm one that actually does tons of patterns out of magazines. I'm not a digital person I like to see it without worring my battery might go dead.

It helps the visual learner and the one who wants a written direction. Plus the printed versions give specific amount of yardage for different sizes of quilts, which the videos don't really go into.

    I agree that this is a unique and very welcome feature.... I use both the written instructions and the tutorials... It's so nice to have them both.....

    I have all of the QQ's, and now subscribe to BLOCK... Quilty is the only other magazine I ever buy....

    I love the Block and also Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting. I have a subscription to American Patchwork and QuiltMaker, as well, but I seldom see anything I want to make and end up giving it to my neighbor.

    I also really like Quilt Sampler. I think it only comes out twice a year. They always feature different quilt shops around the country and I love to read those stories.

    Just out of curiosity, why won't you be renewing your APQ subscription? I subscribe to it, and since Quilt is no longer being produced, it's probably my favorite. I also like Quilty for the articles, but their patterns are geared towards new quilters.

    Re: Quilting Magazines

    I subscribe to BLOCK and Quilt-it Today (easy and intermediate quilt and sewing projects). I flipped through a Quilt-it Today at a local store and started buying it for $3.99 an issue. The cost of a one year subscription (6 issues) is $12.95 so I decided to subscribe.

    I don't subscribe to any (except Block) but I always pick up Quilts and More when the new one comes out. This magazine has a lot in it including lots of small items to make for gifts.

    Re: Quilting Magazines

    I have a ton of books and magazines from years ago by various quilting "experts". At the time they all used templates that you had to make yourself, cut everything with scissors and I had no clue what I was doing. Everything seemed too difficult and time consuming. Consequently they have been sitting in the attic or basement with nothing being made from them. Now that I have learned some things I may go back and see if I can adapt some of the patterns that I liked to Jenny's way of doing things. If not I think I will donate them to the library or somewhere.
    Right now I subscribe to BLOCK and QUILTER'S WORLD. Many of the patterns that I like on E Patterns are ones that first appeared in QW. I also like having the written directions and fabric lists from Jenny's videos in BLOCK. I also find many things on line that are free, so I have waaay more patterns than I will ever be able to make, but I still enjoy flipping through he magazines in the stores. I'm sure if something REALLY catches my eye, I would buy it.

    Re: Quilting Magazines

    I used to subscribe to several quilt magazines, but I found too often that the patterns were simply the same old blocks, all be it done in different colors, fabrics or settings. I let all the subscriptions expire. I still look at the mags at my LQS or the grocery store, but I rarely buy them anymore, unless there is an article I want to read. Money is tight for me, so I need a really good reason to spend it. .. I still have a whole bookcase of reference books & with the internet & this forum, it's not like I'll run out of ideas any time soon.

    I don't subscribe to any, any more. Too many times you get entire issues with nothing your interested in.
