    We used about 175 bags, did not have enough of the right size and had to buy extra off of ebay - came up with special Nascar bags, which was perfect because the quilt was for a friend who is a Nascar fan... I used my 4x12 ruler to make sure that the square was centered around the logo and cut out front and back at the same time. It felt like I was cutting bags for almost all of last summer. Here is another view.

    I just made a crown royal quilt this winter for some folks that had saved a bunch of bags,and a freind of a freind referred them. I made it in the Drunkards Path. It was adorable. If you have any questions I'd be happy to help.

    Well it just might be worth it that crown royal goes down smooth but kinda expensive :roll:

    I'm pretty sure it ended up at 80x80, the drunkards path blocks were 6" x 10 across & down then I added the 2.5" white border then an 8" outer border. I didn't have a pattern but I do have it saved on my EQ6 program. I could send you as much info as I have and the templates. Just let me know, by the way, I appliqued the curved pieces it made it much easirer.

    I'm still concerned about washing it- did you pre-wash the bags or does it need to be dry cleaned? Thanks in advance, Deb

    I told the owners to dry clean,I made it all out flannel and I was afraid of washing it because of the purple bleeding into the cream background.

    i made a dresden plate quilt for a friend using the commemorative bags (logo) for the circle of fabric that goes in the middle. it turned out beautifully. The guy was in too big a hurry to take his quilt home so all I was allowed time to do was to tie it.Bummer!!!

    I forgot to show you gals how it looked after I quilted it, I used purple thread and a meandering feather design, but I called it drunken feathers...it fits!
