  1. “For the Love of Quilting” changed to simply “Love of Quilting” beginning with the Sept/Oct 2002 issue. One of the cover stories that month was “Quilts to Comfort the Grieving in NY”, with a lovely quilt on the cover called “Sunflowers Around the Courthouse”. Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. the title is Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting….. I am guessing since MaryAnn and Liz are no longer doing the show together that the Fons and Porter part has been left off and now it is just Love of Quilting? I never look at the title cause I am too busy looking at the beautiful quilt on the front cover!!!!!!

  3. “Sew Many Quilts” became “For the Love of Quilting” with the July/August 1999 issue. “For the…” was dropped & it became “Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting” with the September/October 2002 issue. If “Fons & Porter’s…” has been recently dropped, I haven’t noticed!

  4. Prior to September/October 2002, the title was “For the Love of Quilting”. The “For the” was dropped on the September/October 2002 issue, used on the November/December 2002 issue for the last time and then dropped for the January/Februray 2003 issue and hasn’t been used since.

  5. I would love to enter, but I spent days online searching and cannot find the history of this magazine and I don’t want to just copy what someone else put. So, good luck to whoever wins 🙂 I can’t wait to see what the answer is 🙂

  6. “Sew Many Quilts” became “For the Love of Quilting” in July/August 1999 issue. “For the…” was dropped & it became “Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting” with the September/October 2002 issue.

  7. Sew Many Quilts magazine was changed to For the Love of Quilting starting with the July/Augus 1999 issue. Then it was Changed to Love of Quilting with the Sept./Oct. 2002 issue.

  8. Sew Many Quilts magazine was changed to For the Love of Quilting starting with the July/August 1999 issue. Then it was Changed to Love of Quilting with the Sept./Oct. 2002 issue.

  9. The Sew Many Quilts magazine was changed to For the Love of Quilting starting with the July/August 1999 issue. It was then changed to Love of Quilting with the Sept./Oct. 2002 issue.

  10. I’m with y’all here. I don’t have a 2002 nor the 2003 Jan issue so I am just going to comment that whatever date it was It must be ok and working.
    Fons and Proter are still working partners, Liz Porter has just taken a break from the TV shows.
    at least that is what was said during the first show of series 1600 with Mary Fons helping her Mother Maryann Fons.

  11. I’m A “newbie” quilter. The first issue I have of Love of Quilting is May /June 2009, so as far as I am concerned, that is when it became the official title. I know that is not the “correct answer”, but it is the best I can do.

  12. Sew Many Quilts appeared first in March/April, 1996, which was also a Fons and Porter magazine. The Love of Quilting Magazine had its first issue published in the July/August 1999 issue.

  13. The way I see it, the magazine was ‘Sew Many Quilts’ starting with the March/April 1996 issue.
    Then the name was changed to ‘For the Love Of Quilting’ starting with the July/August 1999 issue.
    The magazine name was changed to it’s current name, ‘Love Of Quilting’, starting with the January/February 2003 issue.
    All versions of the magazine have always carried the Fons and Porter names.
    The point is, we don’t care what you name the magazine, we still LOVE the QUILTING and the magazine!!! Thanks for so many great years!

  14. Sew Many Quilts became For the Love of Quilting with the July/August 1999 issue and For the Love of Quilting name was shortened to Love of Quilting with the September/October 2002 issue. Had to dig a bit through my archives, but, found the answer sitting on my shelves. So, very glad the magazine has become more available over time. The old “Sew Many Quilts” issues were hard to find and for me could not find them in the metro area where I lived but in a small town close to our lake place.

  15. Fons and Porter’s “Love of Quilting” was first used in January / February 2003 issue. Prior it was called Fons and Porter’s For the Love of Quilting, starting back in July / August 1999.

  16. The first issue with the name Love Of Quilting was Sep/Oct 2002. But it seems that For the Love of Quilting was then used for the Nov/Dec 2002 issue, then back to just Love of Quilting for the Jan/Feb 2003 issue thru current issue.

  17. The first time just the title “Love of Quilting” was used was on the September/October 2002 issue. The next issue November/December 2002 was back to the “For The Love of Quilting” was used again. Then the January/February 2003 issue began the steady use of the “Love of Quilting” title.

  18. Changed in 2002 … Sept/Oct issue 2002

    Had been For The Love of Quilting since 1999 and before that, Sew Many Quilts. I remember buying your very first issue in 1996, been a reader ever since !!

  19. “Sew Many Quilts” became “For the Love of Quilting” July/August 1999.
    It became “Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting” September/October 2002.

    I thought this was going to be a question on holiday trivia. Oh, well.

  20. It was July/August 1999 and I have that issue yet, and the others before it. Running out of space. Electronic media would be a great idea to keep all those wonderful quilts for a very long time. Thanks and good luck everyone!!

  21. The first time Love of Quilting was used was Sept/Oct 2002 then For the Love Of Quilting was used on the Nov/Dec 2002 Issue. The Jan/Feb 2003 issue reverted to Love of Quilting.

  22. July/August 1999

    I was so tickled to recently see the vest book I own and used to create several vests including one that I entered in the Indiana State Fair. It was in a recent episode of the TV show.

  23. Sew Many Quilts became “For the Love of Quilting” in July/August 1999 issue. “For the” was dropped & it became “Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting” with the September/October 2002 issue.

  24. Prior to September/October 2002, the title was “For the Love of Quilting”. The “For the” was dropped on the September/October 2002 issue, but then was back on the November/December 2002 issue and then removed from the January/Februray 2003 issue.
