I LOVE books and there is nothing better to me than a quilt book ! ! So, here is MY opinion of the 15 MUST HAVE Quilt books for ALL Quilter's
I've added a link for each book, MOST may be purchased new or used and I've seen a few at our local Goodwill book store, so shop around. Don't forget the library too !
I own all the books pictured here, pictures were taken on my sewing room floor. I know the books I'm sharing !
