Modern Quilting 101 (Essential Resources?)

Want to learn more about Modern Quilting? 

Where should a beginner go to find out more?

What are your favorite Modern Quilting resources?

Though I'm no expert in the field, I've agreed to give a presentation on Modern Quilting to the Chula Vista  Quilters Guild on October 8, at 7:00 pm, using examples from our fabulous and talented SDMQG members. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by and offer some moral support!

But if you can't be there, maybe you can help me make a list of Essential Modern Quilting Resources to share with the CVQG members. Here's a few that I've put together from my own collection - did I forget any?
