Quilt books.  No matter how many we have, it's still hard to pass up adding new titles to the shelf. Make that shelves. Plural.

Every week, new books come across my desk. Some are interesting but "not my thing" while others are quickly filled with post-it page tabs for projects that need to be on my "to-do" list.

I was curious about what books were the best-sellers for Moda this past year so I asked. That list is below - they are the books that you must have liked because shops kept buying them.

In the coming months, we're going to feature some of our favorite books, old and new. They are the books that we love for projects, information and resources, titles that we think every quilter-sewist should have or at least take a look at, and books that are purely eye-candy and good for our quilting souls.

Before we share the list, we'd like to know about your favorite books. You know, the titles that would absolutely be on your shelf if you were going to start a "quilt book library" from scratch. (It's okay if the books are out-of-print and only available from a used-book store/source.)

As for the most popular books per the Moda warehouse, this is the list. It's in no particular order.
