I thought I'd share a bit about three of my favorite quilting books.

Lucky Spool's Essential Guide to Modern Quilt Making is broken into ten workshops, each written by a different powerhouse quilter. I love the variety in style and technique. This 191 page book is packed with lessons, patterns, and tips.

Shape by Shape by Angela Walters is one of my go to books for free motion quilting ideas. I love the format of presenting a variety of quilting motifs that fit well in a particular shape. There are over 70 designs suitable for each part of your quilt. Check out book 2 as well.

Patchwork City by Elizabeth Hartman is a charming book with 75 blocks in three sizes. The geometric blocks have fun names like Airport, Laundromat, and Clock Tower. There are so many opportunities for fussy cutting in these blocks.
