September is quilt month

Mr. Monkeysuit blogged about quilt books recently. So I will sorta follow suit.

Books, that I could not live without:
When I started quilting I would have said the 3 books by Ursula Reikes.
Not too long afterwards - the cat book(s) by Janet Kime.
The triangle based books by Sara Nephew is probably still on my list.

I went through the Nickel Quilts phase (Author Pat Speth).
I went through the Baltimore Album Phase - mostly Mimi Dietrich, with a healthy does of Elly "I have no idea how to spell her last name."

I really like both of the books that I have by Weeks Ringle & Bill Kerr.
I am completly entranced by Denise Schmidt - but intimidated by her method; hence the enlarged patterns & bundles of fabric waiting to become quilt tops.

I have many other quilt books & fairly regularly look through many of them "again."

What quilt books can you not live without?

My Kaffe Fassett books and the Valorie Wells books (for the photos more than the quilts).

mmmh, I think I can't live without my three Jinny Beyer's book: Quilting By Hand, Patchwork Patterns and The Quilter's Book of Blocks and Borders... nor without Sally Pederson's Reversible Quilts... I love them all!!!
