Magazines!!!

It's giveaway time!!! Again! lol

When I first started quilting, I was lucky enough to know someone who was cleaning out her stash and a group of pals went through her magazines. I came home with quite a stack of older magazines and I have enjoyed them enough! I have used what I wanted to and I am ready to pass them on!

I always look at Fons & Poter. Years ago I got my first copy and made 3 quilts from the issue, thought it was the best thing ever. Now I can figure out almost any pattern on my own, but I still enjoy seeing the simple ones written with beginners in mind.- cheryl(from MO, USA)willis

I usually check out the Quick Quilts magazine.

McCall's and Fons & Porter are two of my favorite but I have a hard time not looking at them all! :)

Winona said...

Definitely Fons and Porter. I have a quilt I want to make out of their July/August issue as soon as I have time. It is called 'Nothing but Triangles' I think. I posted about it on my blog yesterday, but I'm too lazy to go look for sure. LOL I love old quilting magazines. Winona

My sister got me a subscription to Quiltmaker, so I enjoy that one in my jammies at home. I really don't look at the others unless someone points me in the direction of a particular issue - I am swimming in patterns and ideas as it is. (But there is always room for more!)

Well, since you didn't specify what KIND of magazines... I always look for the latest issues of Beadwork and Ceramics Monthly... I am not a quilter, just an appreciative sister of a few quilters... ;~) If I win, I'll have you send the mags to Regina!
BTW - I LOVE your blog... I check it every day! Give the puppies a scratch on the belly for me!

My hubby and I have a little thing - once or twice a month we have lunch then head for the bookstore and he looks at car or motorcycle mags and I look at EVERY SINGLE ONE of the quilting mags trying to decide which to subscribe too.

I LOOK AT AND SOMETIMES BUY QUILTERS WORLD FOLLOWED BY QUICK QUILTS. THEY SEEM TO HAVE A LOT OF DIFFERENT IDEAS IN THEM.

I always look at Fons and porter---I have all the copies of their magazine---it has always been my favorite! Thanks for doing this give-away! What fun!

Jill,
I love Fons and Porter and quite like the Quilter magazine. I often buy them off the rack. These days I want to look at the magazine before I buy it as they cost so much - at least here in Canada. I do like McCalls and American Patchwork and Quilting too. My very favorite for a long time was Australian Patchwork and Quilting - I had a subscription for it for about 5 years. I still buy it occasionally off the newstand.
Your giveaway is fun- thanks for chance to win the magazine. I have made the one on the cover of the Quilters World. You can see it on the header of my blog.
You can find it here: http//quiltmomsjourney.blogspot.com/
Regards,
Anna

I love Quick QUilts but its practically impossible to find here in Australia. I once made a great quilt from there - all log cabin blocks - but it's look quite sorry now that my beloved Jack has been playing and sleeping on it for a few years! LOL.
Please let me know if I'm showing up as a 'No Reply' commenter as I do not mean to be.

I always look at Quiltmaker. I subscribe to Irish Quilting right now, but have subscribed to each of these magazines over the years.

I love quilting magazines! Great giveaway! :)

In Romania, quilting is not too familiar. We have not specialized stores and no quilting magazines.

Marcia said...

Fons and Porter, though with the magazines becoming so expensive we are cutting back on all subscriptions. Sigh!

Nancy Sue said...

I like Quilters Word and Fabric Trends. My hubbie found the Fabric Trends magazine for me. They seem so expensive though, that recently my favorite quilting magazines are the ones for 50 cents at the book aisle in our local goodwill store.
