Meg Cox was kind enough to send me a free copy of this book to review and giveaway on my blog. She did this shortly after I received the books from Lark Books and I had mixed feelings about that experience: happiness that my work on the blog was recognized and stung that they never responded to any of my emails for more information.

As an indirect result of that experience, it took me awhile to get to starting this book. Once I did get to it, I had a hard time putting it down. This is a dense, pa

The Quilter's Catalog is a strange book. It is probably great for people who know literally nothing about quilting to learn absolutely every last detail there is to know, and it is also probably great for people who know a ton about quilting to confirm that they do, in fact, know quite a bit and perhaps even learn tidbits that even they, as experts, did not know. However, if your knowledge of quilting is somewhere in between "I am a completely blank slate" and "I'm an expert quilter," then this ...more

Almost TO MUCH information, but I thoroughally enjoyed every page. Have tried to keep track of the extensive website references, but alas ... there are just too many, so I just keep the book as a SUPERIOR reference when I feel like visiting the world of quilting from the dis-comfort of my computer chair ... I need a new chair really bad LOL, LOL --- nothing to do with the book.

Would be good for someone who knows nothing about quilting resources. Very little that I didn't already know or couldn't have found elsewhere if I were interested. Being a catalog, it will be quickly outdated.

I read just random entries the first time I borrowed this book from the library. This time I am methodically reading it and got to page 177. I will pick it up again from the shelf and start here. It's a good overview of quilting. I liked learning about the origins of the sewing machine.

This book has just about everything you ever wanted to know about quilting. The only thing I didn't like was the binding. It was to stiff to open and read comfortably. Ring binding would be better. A great gift for any quilter.
