I don’t know about you – but I love all of the ‘Best of’ round-ups that happen at the end of every year.
As we say goodbye to 2012 – I couldn’t help but wonder what our own 12 best selling* books and/or products would be…
Queue Adrianne, our resident database expert, and in true countdown fashion, starting from number 12…
Number 12: Create Your Own Free-Form Quilts by Rayna Gillman
Number 11: Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop
Number 9: Bags the Modern Classics by Sue Kim
Number 8: Simply Triangles by Barbara Cline
Number 7: Kim Schaefer’s Skinny Quilts
Number 6: Quilters Freezer Paper Sheets
Number 5: Zakka Style by Rashida Coleman Hale
Number 4: Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters
Number 3: Carol Doak’s Foundation Paper
Number 2: Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison
And the No. 1 selling item of the year 2012 is…..
Thank you to everyone who made 2012 a wonderful year for the C&T family! From our beloved consumers for whom we create these books and products to our most wonderful authors without whom none of this would be possible!
*What’s with the *? Well, the auditor in me (former life!) can’t help but footnote this and tell you that these items include those released IN the year 2012 AND prior to the year 2012 – so keep in mind that some of these items have only been out in the world for 6 months! Also, we are counting these in terms of units sold, not dollars, so it doesn’t matter if something is priced at $1.00 or $1,000 – same same for our purposes… whew… my inner auditor feels much better.
