I've created this site so that I could refer friends and family to my favorite quilting sites and also to my own personal "block swap" sites.
Please see below for links to my favorite sites.  I've not listed every site I've seen like you'll find on some quilting sites, I've only listed my favorite places.  These sites are those which I find to have excellent patterns, a large variety of patterns or unusual patterns  and to be very useful.
HST Monthly Swap--Very handy as a filler for any quilt.

If you haven't been to HGTV, you should! Simply search for "quilts".  You will also find tons of craft ideas, home improvement, gardening...the list goes on.
