Quilted Orange Zipper Bags
8 x 8 inches

This week I am in need of gifts for family & friends so I made a few bags.
This is my own Homemade Recipe for great bags and you can make 5 of them at once in an afternoon!

Quilted Pink Zipper Bags

If they look familiar, it is because I made the pink ones above for holiday gift giving.

I hope you will give them a try. It is a great way to use up strips of fabric and also great practice for your machine quilting skills!

Morning Cattle Call
Our weather here in Western Oregon has been sunny and bright.
It makes feeding cattle much more pleasant.

May Your Bobbin Always Be Full,


  1. Thanks for the tutorial! I love those bags and I have some Moda Scrap Bag strips that will be perfect for them!

  2. Hi Country Log Cabin Quilter,
    Be sure to send a photo of your quilted bags!
    I will post it on the blog.

  3. Thank you for the bag tutorial, LuAnn. I think they're adorable and would love to make one - or five! Just need to find more time in my quilty day! But one day, I will. I appreciate that you shared your pattern with us.

  4. It's Linda again... I made bags following your tutorial. Several differences though:
    1. I could not make mine in an afternoon. Quilting took longer than I thought, and who has zippers laying around!? VBG
    2. I could not make five from my fabric width. You must have used OLD fabric. Gosh, some of my newer pieces have only 39" of usable print! I could make only four bags.
    3. I put the handle on the same side as the zipper tab when the bag is close.

    Thanks for photos that could be enlarged. I didn't know you'd switched from a zipper foot to a quarter-inch foot until I took a close look.

    Two of these four bags are birthday gifts for my blog-followers, so I'll post pictures in a week. Thanks for the tute!

  5. Hi LuAnn,
    Thanks for sharing this tutorial, I've overcome my fear of stippling and zips in one project!

  6. Luann, these bags are fantastic...thanks for sharing the tutorial!
