Quilt Magazines

My grandson took this picture of me while I was into reading my new quilting magazine. I didn't even know he was standing there taking the pic.

I think sometimes I have a addiction to quilting magazines. I like to read all about the new gadgets, fabric lines, and all the new and different quilt patterns. I subscribe to all of my favorites so I won't miss one. I have a question to everyone.....Do you keep any of the quilt magazines that you buy after you have read them? I can't seem to get rid of mine. I feel like I need to keep them so I can go back and look for patterns some other day. The magazines are going to take over my closet one day. The quilt shop I go to in Waco does take donated used quilt magazines and sells them for 25cents apiece. The money is then donated to the animal shelter. I have given a few of my magazines to them one time but it sure was hard to let go.

I remember the first quilt magazine I bought. I was in Beaumont Tx. with my mom when she had her cancer. I went to a fabric store there and at the check out there was a Quiltmaker mag. with the pattern on the cover called Friends. It caught my eye, I bought it, and read Quiltmaker ever since. I ended up making a quilt from that pattern on the cover for my new granddaughter.

Here are pics of three of the box's I have my mags in. I have two others that I didn't get into the picture.

There are even more magazines that are on my sewing table.

These are my favorite quilt magazines. I don't want to miss any of them.

Maybe one day I will be able to let go of some of these but for right now I will keep them to read over and over.
