Top Modern Quilting Books for your Sewing Library

The one thing I get to do as the host of the Modern Sewciety podcast is chat with authors in the sewing industry. It is a pretty dreamy job I must admit. I am a cheerleader of others accomplishments so the podcast just seems to be a the perfect form of media for me. My guests and I can have a chat while we are still in our jammies which is a win/win for both of us. The relaxed format for the podcast really helps me have a genuine chat with my guest. I feel like it really let’s us get talk about the details of the book they have just written, the real nitty gritty details. I love those chats when the guest really tells us the ups and downs of the reality of writing a book. Today I am sharing my top 5 picks for your quilting library and many have been on the podcast so I have added those links as well. I hope you will check out the books and the podcast.
