Best of 2012–Quilts, bags and more

You might be sick of these “Best Of” posts but I need to do one more with the quilting type projects.  A selfish reason really, I like looking back and reminiscing.
1.  Chris and Erin's quilt

2.  Pillow for a swap – I designed the layout and just love how the colors and pattern turned out.  It was hard to part with this one.

3.  String Quilt – love this after it was completed, it took for-e-ver to make

4. My all time favorite large bag Amy Butler's Weekender Bag – made it twice this year

5.   The Alice Book bag – Easy purse to sew, put very popular with the 16 to 20-somethings I know.  It is quick and easy – here is pictures of 5 of the 7 I have made

6.  Kimi Rose Purse – talk about visual effect.  My girls use this almost everyday, it can pack some stuff!

7.  Red and aqua quilt for Kaitlyn – it just screams “fun”

8.  Sunspot quilt – I love the white background setting off the bright colors even more.

9.  Christmas quilt – like it but most importantly it is DONE!

10,Evelyn Bag – the most detailed oriented bag I have made.  It does make it look so RTW.

Then I finish off the list with two bags from my own pattern line
11. Rose -A Messenger bag

12.  Daisy- my second pattern

So that is it, my three “Best of” posts, now I better head to my sewing room and start working on the 2013 projects!

Happy New Year!


  1. What an impressive collection of beautiful items - I have added "make a bag" to my 2013 list.

  2. Do you ever sleep, Lori? The collection of bags and quilts is more than most of us can sew in one year, but you also have a collection of clothes for you AND for your children!
    Beautiful collection - cheerful and lovely. Happy New Year :)

  3. Oh my, you had an awesome sewing year and looking forward to 2013. Happy New Year.

  4. I so love to check out your finished projects. Thanks so much for sharing.
