    ReplyDelete
  43. So many amazing blogs out there (love the stuff Leanne at shecanquilt makes amongst many others) and my favourite book is the Modern Blocks book or perhaps the Material Obsession books ...oh, and I love Jane Brocket`s designs too. I heart quilt books. Did I mention City Quilts?

  52. Foolproof Machine Quilting (with your walking foot) by Mary Mashuta has helped me a great deal. So many wonderful books out there!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have always liked the look of crazy quilts. This 'carefree' style looks good too- and perhaps (?) a bit easier for a novice to manage.

  54. Hi, thanks for the great giveaway.
    At the moment I am using 501 Rotary Cut Blocks. I have been patch working for about 5 years, yet have never really made pieced blocks,
    Hugs

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm so lucky to have four quilt shops close to me that I take classes at and belong to different groups. I have tons of knowledge that I can go to any of the shops and find help. If it's 10pm on a Saturday night and I need a refresher on a certain block construction, I open my book by Billie Lauder. I can't remember the name (as I'm not home now to check) but it has tips, tricks and great diagrams. I had a teacher suggest it years ago and I'm glad I have it.

    Thank you so much for a great giveaway and a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Help! favourite- that is difficult. Too many of you out there. and too many different styles to have a go at! I go back to a childhood book at times- Complete book of handicrafts, but UI also have a 'quilters resource book' which is great.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. Wow. That looks like a great book Juli.

    I really love these for great instructions and help with the basics on quilting:
    Oh Fransson
    Stitched in Color
    In Color Order
    and there are many others but those come to mind right this second.
    Thanks for another great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  68. There are so many blogs I reference daily for tips and inspiration, but when I was first learning how to quilt, and when I need a refresher on something, I reference the Quilting 101 posts over at Chasing Cottons. They have been very helpful for me.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I have so many blogs that I gain inspiration from that it would be hard to pick just one. I'm just thrilled that we live in an age where we can sit at home in our jammies and have immediate access to people from all over the world who love quilting.

    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  103. The reference book that I've begun using is one that my late sister had in college: The Complete Guide to Needlework from Reader's Digest. One of my favorite blogs is Quilt Inspiration - so many beautiful ideas. Thanks for the giveaway - your follower.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I just came across the Quilt Blocks Galore website where they have LOTS of quilt block patterns. So I am spending a bit of time there deciding on my next several projects. The Intrepid Thread, though, is my favorite! :-) Thanks for the give away!

    Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I dont have a fav refrenece book , as the internet tends to be the first place I go. I also look at so many blogs it would be difficult to pick just one favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  110. That looks like a wonderful book! Thanks for giving me a chance to own it.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I love alot of quilt blogs, but my favoite is "Bee in my Bonnett" . She designs fabric also, as well as quilts, and has so many cute things that she makes!!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I like the tutorials on the Oh, Fransson! blog. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I like 200 Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match by Davina Thomas.

    ReplyDelete
  114. The first book I turn to is the Quilters Ultimate Visual Guide - it's got lots of bits of paper sticking out of the pages and probably slightly worse for wear! Thanks for the chance :)

    ReplyDelete
  115. The Quilter's Ultimate Visual Guide is my go to reference! That book looks like fun!

    ReplyDelete
  116. My favorite blog is Moda Bakeshop. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I love the quilts in that book! I google... a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  118. When I need help with techniques, I tend to refer back to my first quilting book, "Quilts from the Quiltmaker's Gift".

    ReplyDelete
  119. I usually use Fons and Porter Basic book or a great little book titled A to Z of Quilting. If that doesn't work just bing it or google it and the answer is out there somewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I've made the most projects from the book "I Heart Patchwork," and I'm super, super enjoying the Oh My Stars! quilt-a-long at thoughtandfound.wordpress.com.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I kinda just dove into the whole quilting thing without much reference. I checked out a few books from the library and went from there. Now I have a whole mess of bloggers I follow. I can't say I follow just one but I guess I prefer the whole on-line quilting reference material. Videos are a life saver.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I've just made my first quilt using The Practical Guide to Patchwork: New Basics for the Modern Quiltmaker by Elizabeth Hartman, so that was my main reference plus lots of online tips:)

    ReplyDelete
  123. I like various books, magazines quilt country here in France, online resources always rock, forums, you tube...aren't we lucky to have so much reference material

    ReplyDelete
  124. There really isn't one but my favorite is Patchwork Minus Mathwork. I have used it so many times during my quilting career I can't even begin to tell you. I found it on Amamzon - was glad to see they made a revised edition - so many people have asked about mine. I may buy the new one since mine is in such rough shape.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Looks like a nice book, even though I've never seen it before! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  126. 501 Rotary Cut Blocks is always a big help to me....I love the book

    ReplyDelete
  127. I read a lot of blogs and save tons of tutorials and have always taken away something good from all of them so all blogs and all books are my mentors in quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Very good book. Tks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I loves Quilting Gallery blog.
    Thanks for the chance to win the great book!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I don't have a favourite book or blog. I do a lot of "surfing" depending on my mood at the time, But I love to have lots of references.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I love the "Sew We Quilt" blog. Madame Samm arranges for quilters to give tutorials on all aspects of quilting. Ir is a valuable source of projects as well as techniques.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I have Elizabeth Hartman's book that I have referenced for basics when I was first starting this quilting journey. I have a few others too but found hers most helpful. Nowadays, the Internet and all it's bloggy goodness is my go-to for ideas. Thanks for the chance for a new book:)

    ReplyDelete
  133. Would love to be carefree!! I love blogs and follow MANY; my favorite is the one I'm reading at any given moment.

    ReplyDelete
  134. The first book I used for reference was Quilts, Quilts, Quilts. I still have it handy along with class handouts, blogs, pinned posts, etc... There is such a wealth of information out there.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I have never had a quilting book, still in the process of teaching myself how to sew and learning as I go. My fav teaching site so far though would have to be the Moda Bake shop. I love the fact that I can save the bookmark to each quilt or download a printable file. :)

    BTW, I think it is hilarious and coincidence that my safety word verification is "Obsess"

    ReplyDelete
  136. I would say the Moda Bake Shop website would be what I use most for making blankets or plenty of other possibilities for gifts. I do have books, but I usually only scan through them for ideas or color schemes-I haven't made anything out of them.

    THanks!

    ReplyDelete
  137. This looks like just my kind of book! I really don't use any reference books. I get inspiration from many different blogs - and Pinterest. That's probably my favorite resource

    ReplyDelete
  138. I follow many blogs and have some quilt books where I get inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  139. It's SO hard to name just one favorite, but I'll choose the "Patchwork Times" blog by Judy Laquidara! It's a great combo of quilty/crafty stuff and just plain ol' life. And the "life" stuff is pretty funny stuff!

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  140. Oooo, I've so many good reference books that it is hard to choose. I think, though, that the ones I open most often are Liberated Quilting (Gwen Marston) and Collaborative Quilting (Gwen Marston and Freddi Moran).

    ReplyDelete
  141. I'm new to the quilting world, so I'm still searching for a go to quilt reference book. I've been borrowing alot of different quilt books trying to find the book for me. And if I'm looking for a specific technique, I do a google search. I follow alot of blogs that have alot of awesome information. This book looks great! Thanks for a chance to win! :)

    ReplyDelete
  142. I am fairly new to quilting and have only just discovered your amazing site. Thanks for the inspiration! My favourite books and site would have to be Material Obsession. I had the change to visit them while visiting relatives in Australia - so much to see and where to look first!!! I would love to win this book and thanks for the opportunity. Liz

    ReplyDelete
  143. My favorite quilting blog is Missouri Star Quilt for their great video tutorials (great for visual learners like myself). Thanks for the chance to win!
